What I like about the book is the metaphors so I can draw pictures in my mind and put it on paper because I’m a visual learner so I can process thing visually which helps me remember important events in the book. I like to transform the metaphor and sometimes I make my own. When I infer I take the clues I get from the events from the book and make them in to a movie in my head to predict a what happens next. When I connect I know it happens when something happens in the book which triggers a sudden flow of memory and / or emotion. Visualizing is a lot like inferring where words are ingredients mixed in to my head with a whisk which sometimes comes out with unexpected results.🍰
Something that surprised me was how I connected with the book because when Cole felt alone my biggest fear is being alone. When me and my family get in a big fight I feel alone and abandoned. And when Cole want everyone to think he doesn't get hurt sometimes I feel some people think it's ok to hurt me just because I'm so happy all the time. I want to be yay joy but I want people to understand that I get hurt too and it matters.
