So far my reading is going well. I’m not use to writing in my book at all so sometimes I forget I’m even supposed to. When I do I just underline something that stands out to me or that I can somehow relate to. When I have questions about something that is said I usually circle it. Mostly what I do in my book is kind of write a summary at the end of each chapter that way I can look back at what I think were the most important facts but then later on I can go back through the chapter and underline where the important details came from.
I think the most important survival skill is confidence and courage. Throughout all the readings I feel like Beah has made it through the hard times by being positive and still having hop that he is going to find his family. In chapter 11 where Beah writes “My eyes followed the brown dusty path that continued down the hill to the thick forest.” It just shows how excited Beah is to get to the village and see his parents.
