In the book “Romiette and Julio,” Sharon Draper uses symbolism and irony to explain the theme through the story. She uses the key chains as a symbol when Romiette gave them to Julio when they were at lunch, when he gave her the lion at school. The key chains represent that they will always be together. Also, she uses irony when the gang put them into a boat and onto the lake. It is irony because Romiette is afraid of water. And she is afraid of drowning. This is how there is symbolism and irony in the book “Romiette and Julio.”
