2/20 (Week 1), Post A

Quote and Significance:

"I was born with water on the brain." (pgs.1 and 2). This quote really sums up the first section of my book because Junior was born with extra "brain grease" around his brain so at a young age he had to have it sucked out. He has an enormous head and many kids make fun of him, and he talks alot about how he suffers from siezures and other disorders due to his brain problems

Emerging Theme:

One emerging theme thus far has been standing up for yourself. Junior is going to have to learn to protect himself and stand up for himself, otherwise he's going to live a life of poverty and shame just like his parents are now.
