The Circuit by Francisco Jimenez- nonfiction
Panchito and his brother are told to run into fields to avoid being spotted by a school bus. Papa told them to hide because if they were caught by the school bus driver, the school system would know that the children weren't going to school and were truants. This shows that they were invisible to the school system and government. (Jimenez 69)
- At the end of the story, Panchito’s family packs up to leave the old garage they had called home for several months to move to an area with more agricultural jobs. This upsets Panchito because he had been enjoying himself at school. For example, he began to learn English and how to play the trumpet from his teacher, only real friend. The family didn't think about how it would effect Panchito, and he may of felt invisible bacuaes they didn't take him into consideration. (Jimenez 71)
