Blackwater River, all day there were roaring currents. Its important to the story because that’s where a significant event happened. It adds meaning to the story because it shows how horrible that place is. The book would be different because you wouldn’t understand why the event was so tragic.

The truth will set you free. Text Evidence 1:”And I’m going to tell,” (pg.139) Text Evidence 2: “It was poisoning me just knowing. (Pg.139) Text Evidence 3: “Mom, I have to tell you….” (pg.45)
This book was written in 1 st person point of view. This point of view helps the reader understand the feelings of the main character. The story would be because you wouldn’t be able to know how Brodie feels and his is the most important character.
I think a puppy would be a good symbol because a puppy is playful and in a way it almost pulls pranks on us..like Brodie. For example if a puppy hurts its owner it feels guilty like when Brodie pulled a prank and someone ended up getting killed he felt guilty.
I would recommend reading this book because it kind of teaches you a life lesson and its very interesting. Its worth reading because again it teaches you and important life lesson and you are always on the edge of your seat with this story.
