Storyboard Description

Mari has had a rough couple of years in the United States. Her mother had to travel back to Mexico the night they first arrived. She longs to see her mother again. She now has to move to Vermont with her family, and is scared her mother will not know where she is. Mari unexpectedly makes friends with the younger farm boy Tyler who gives her lessons on the stars, that she really enjoys and connects with. I think this is a very important part of the story as Mari feels through the darkness of the skys she can feel the light.

She now has to move to Vermont with her family, and is scared her mother will not know where she is. Mari unexpectedly makes friends with the younger farm boy named Tyler who gives her lessons on the stars, which she really enjoys and connects with. 
  • Mari feels through the darkness of the skys she can feel the light. Tyler finds joy and comfort when in the barn with Mari, while stargazing at the planets.
  • School is also a struggle for her as there are two boys who are constantly teasing her out of earshot of the teachers. She was especially disappointed in Tyler when he did not stand up to the two bullies for her and her sisters. Mari thought they were friends and felt abandoned when he did not speak up.
