2/27 (Week 2), Post A

Quote and Significance:

"Who has the most hope?" (45). Junior is really opening his curiosity once Mr.P comes over to his porch and talks soem sense about life into him. Junior wants to transfer schools becuase he realizes that kids at white schools have more hope and oppertunity than kids on the reservation.

Emerging Theme:

Thus far through page 65 a major emerging theme is learning to fight discrimination. Junior is going to be (and currently is) the only indian kid in the whole Reardan school. All of the white kids stare at him and he is made fun of constantly. If he's going to suceed in the school and life in general in the outside world (outside the rez), he's going to have to handle discrimination and ignore it.
