The Red Pencil by Andrea Davis Pinkney: Exposition
Hi! My name is Amira and this is my family. Dando, Muma, and Leila.
I want to go to Gad Primary School and learn, but Muma says no.
"What they teach you from those books is useless to you, Amira. We need you here , to milk our cows, to pick okra and melons, to rake." (48)
The Janjaweed attacked our village, killing Dando and destroying our home.
We are going to go to a safe camp called Kalma.
I, Old Anwar, will help take care of them.
Falling Action: Part One
"Today the red pencil does morethan beg for my hand.It makes me a promise.It tells me to try." (207)
I gave in and secretly taught Amira how to read, write, and do math.
I decided to sneak out and go to Gad Primary School to learn, read, write, and teach others how to do so.
"Even with light on your path, how can you walk to a place you do not know?"" You cannot walk alone." (304)
Falling Action: Part Two
We finally got to Nyala where Gad Primary School is. I can get the education I need.
