  • 5. Reading Response (Part 1)
    Throughout both novels the protagonist and other characters often make serious or profound statements about people or life. For example,
    Junior: “I think the world is a series of broken dams and floods, and my cartoons are tiny little lifeboats.” (p. 6)
    Christopher: “. . . loving someone is helping them when they get into trouble, and looking after them, and telling them the truth. . .” p. 87
    Take a few moments now to see if you can locate one or more of these. Write them down on the paper provided.
