Isabel is the main character of the book Chains. She is also the protagonist and narrator of the story. Isabel is determined to find freedom for herself and her younger sister, Ruth. Isabel is also very protective and caring of Ruth. She even took the blame for several things that Ruth did. Isabel is very brave, nurturing, and intelligent.
If Isabel were to go on vacation then she would probably bring the sunflower seeds that were her mom's, a book, and Ruth's doll. I know this because in the book Isabel took the seeds everywhere. She also took Ruth's doll with after Ruth was taken away. Isabel loved to read whenever she had free time she used it for that.
