Story Critique

Jackson: I didn't like the story very much for many reasons. One reason is that it didn't describe anything very well. Another reason is that it is hard to understand the book because there are spanish words thrown in the book at random. Those are a couple reasons why I didn't like the book.

Literary devices

Jackson: 1), You are as dumb as a rock.

Jackson: 2). The coat was old, was white and had vivid black virtical stripes.

Jackson: 3). The bush skipped across the dirt.


Jackson: The story is in 1st person POV because Lupita retells her side of the story throughout the book.
