Key Ideas

  paper 1.  How did Guario help Ana Rosa feel better when she learned that Angel liked Angela?  Why do you think this "put (her) broken heart in place"?

2.  Both Guario and Ana Rosa told each other that they didn't need words to know everything.  Explain what this means.



Literary Focus

writing1.  Explain why Ana Rosa compared Angel to a book.  Which literary technique did the author use to describe how she was feeling?

2.  The mood in this chapter changes from happy to sad.  Tell how the author used specific words in order to help create the two different moods.     



Think of a time when you've been disappointed.  Maybe you were handed back a test that you studied hard for but bombed, or you didn't get the attention you were hoping for from someone else.  Look at the poem that opens this chapter and notice its structure.  Write your own poem using this format about a time when you, or someone else, was disappointed.
