The faces his friend drew for him to understand what they mean. When he saw that face on a person then he knew what they were feeling. He understood that way better and it helped him a lot.
The letters Christopher's mother wrote him while he was growing up. His dad told him she died but she moved out and she been writing the letters for a very long time but Christopher never got them because his father hid them all his entire life.
It was very hard for Christopher to do what he did. He tried so hard to find out the truth even though he was so scared but at the end everything worked out the way he wanted. He faced his fears and I'm sure he is so proud of himself.
