  • Copper Sun
  • Claim
  • Polly showed Amari help and understanding.
  • I am the most influential character because of my help to Amari. I may not have liked her in the beginning, but as we connected more, we realized we needed each other.
  • Amari once had a perfect life in her home. She was surrounded by her loved ones. But once her village was destroyed and she was forced onto a slave ship, away from her home, Amari realized that her life would never be the same. She met a girl named Afi, who helped her realize how important it was to continue life. They had to part ways once Amari was sold to Mr. Derby. She then met a girl named Polly. Amari also met a little boy named Tidbit, whom she saw as a little brother. They all eventually became friends as they went through many struggles with pain, losing loved ones, and parting ways from an old path to a new one.
  • Polly's growing kindness led Amari to become stronger.
  • Another reason why I'm the most influential character is because of my teamwork with Amari.
  • Polly influenced Amari the most.
  • Counterclaim
  • On the other hand, others may say that Afi was more significant. Afi was a slave women that helped Amari survive on the slave ship they traveled on.
  • On page 94 and 95, Polly is trying to teach Amari English, "Let's do something easier, like introductions," Polly said, trying to change the subject. "I am Polly," she said, pointing to herself. "Pol-lee." "Pol-lee." "Yes," Polly said, allowing herself a smile. This moment shows the interaction between the two. Polly only wanted to earn a higher ranking and sleep in a proper room rather than with "savages." This was the beginning for her to give Amari a chance and to bond with her. This was the beginning of their friendship. As Polly and Amari thought strangely of one another in the beginning, they soon realized they were important to each other.
  • Conclusion
  • After Amari, Polly, and Tidbit were separated from Mr. Derby, they embarked on a journey for Fort Mose, which would give them freedom. Polly's continuation with the two showed Amari how she cared. Because Polly was white, she could have left, but instead she helped her friends. They originally didn't want to deal with each other, but towards the end, the pain they had endured linked them together. This is what made Amari stronger.
  • "Let's go this way."
  • However, Afi helped Amari survive on the slave ship.
  • However, this is incorrect because although Afi did hold a large part of influence for Amari, she was only in the beginning of the book, whereas Polly was in the entire book. Polly and Amari's relationship was longer than Afi's, so the two had more time of change. The inspirations of Afi helped begin Amari's journey, but the true journey came in contact with Polly.
  • In conclusion, due to the hard experiences Polly and Amari felt together, they changed from the beginning of the book.
  • In conclusion, Polly affected me the most.
