THESIS SENTENCE: FORESHADOWING
Mike Is Mrs.Winterbottom's Son
Phobe and Sal break into Mrs. Partridge's house trying to find clues that Mrs. Cadaver has left about dead Mr.Cadaver. They are very suspicious about her killing her husband. As they are in the house, Mrs. Partridge is sitting in the corner. They start to talk about why they are trying to sneak in and as they are about to leave Mrs. Partridge says something to Phoebe as she puts her hand over her face, "Oh, Phoebe, I think i met your brother." (Pg:193) This is a big clue because Phoebe doesn't have a brother and if Mrs. Partridge felt a similar face with the same features then they must be related to Phoebe.
Sal's Mom Died In A Bus Accident
Sal was driving the car down a steep hill while Gramps was at the hospital with Gram and she was doing this because she wanted to see her mother before her birthday so Gramps gave her the keys and already taught her how to drive, "As we approached each curve, I could see us smashing straight into a truck or tamper . Every time I saw a bus, I watched it sway. I watched its tires spin dangerously close to the gravel at the road's edge. I watched it plunge on, eating up the road, defying those curves." (Pg:227) Sal is imagining her mom's bus swaying back and fourth and almost going off the side.
Sal, Gram, and Gramps all went to Old Faithful because Gram has wanted to see it her whole life and this was the first time, "Gram sniffled. 'Oh nothing, I'm so ahoy I got to see old faithful.'" Gram was actually crying because she knew it was the end of her life time and that she finally got to go before she died. She has wanted to go since she was a little girl.
