Chains One Pager
By: Daniel Vo
The overall theme of Chains is bravery. When Isabel is in a difficult situation, she always finds a way out of it. For example, when Isabel was about to give up about escaping from an bin box, she would tell herself, "Think, remember." Then she traced her 'I' mark then reminded herself who she was, and her "mark stands for Isabel". She didn't just did nothing. She did everything she can for herself and Ruth to keep them safe.
Metaphor, because it it applies how the words are, which it is not literally applicable: The bookseller was right; the words were dangerous, every one of them.
Hyperbole, because it is just a exaggeration: The poison had eaten holes through her soul and made room for vermin to nest inside her.
