later on we learned tehy crossed the border hidden among a flock of sheep
stay under the sheep you do not want to be seen
he just needed his passport
he just needed a new kidney
the characters needed to leave their current situation to get to safety so they fled across the border under sheep.this causes marjane to realy take a look at her family and be thankful for what she has. and if this did not happen then they would have been killed and this would have killed marjane mentally as she loses a family member.
we will have a better life once we cross the border
this part of the book marjanes uncle needed a new kidney but he had to leave his town to get it, he was unable to go though as he needed a passport. the death of her uncle causes a dislike in her country and government as they let her uncle die. with this in another planet where her uncle survived she would have gained a new liking to her country changing her view point.
we found you a doner
Marjanes boyfriend cheats on her and throws her into a downward spiral.this spiral leades her to the poor, homeless dirty person she was until she moved back home with her parents. if her boyfriend did not cheat she would have been with him for probably ever and would have wasted all of her money on him until the same thing came.
My neighbors had to cross the border from western mexico to get a better life for them selves and their family. They got across safely and gained their citizenship through the test. without this happening for them they would still be living in poverty and they also could not be sending money back to their homes in mexico to help their family out.
My uncle needed a new heart as his pace maker was starting to go bad. the toll on the family that went on as we hoped he survived caused major saddness through out the whole family tree. if he did not get his heart transplant then the toll on the family would have been to the point that people would not be able to do anything.
thank you doctor
young fifth grade joe stokes was just trying to play baseball, when he sees his girlfriend in the crowd with her new boyfriend because she was a cheater. i had to go through the same emotions marjane went through in a much smaller scale but the feelings were still there. if this were not to happen then i feel i would have a greater sense of trust towards the female race as i was exposed to the lying very early.
