Saipan Southern High School book club members and other island teens discuss their books of interest by writing their thoughts about the book choice of the month.
Chapter 11Sophie's family is kind of similar to Tree's own family because the parents are both divorced. The families are somewhat similar also because they're all going through tough times and one other parent is always busy and have so much schedules changing or happening constantly. Sopie's and Tree's family are different because Tree's parents aren't that mean to each other even though they are living in separate houses but Sophie's parents are more hostile. Tree's family seems to be okay and their homes aren't bad but from the description of what Sophie's home looks like; it seems worse.
Chapter11Sophie's parents are somewhat not getting along but Tree's parents are divorced. Sophie's dad doesn't really care about anything at all. He doesn't appreciate things from his heart. Tree's father is more focused on his career. He is all about the job. He never has the time to associate with his family. On the other hand, Sophie and Tree's family are both having marriage problems. I think that both of Tree's and Sophie's parents are always tight up with their schedule and everything. They never have the time to spend time with their families. So I think that Sophie and Tree will most likely understand each other's problems.
I think what Sophie is doing for tree is really nice taking him to see her father and giving him a gift for Christmas. I think that’s nice of her for doing that to tree and I think Sophie’s mom is kind of dirty like a person who sweats every day and does not even bother to clean herself and her house. I think Sophie’s mom is paranoid when she saw tree and saw how tall he was when he came if I were her I would of shout for him being in my house. But I think she is a cool person by heart.
Tree was able to meet Sophie’s family. I think Sophie’s dad has some issues. I ‘m not exactly sure since it’s not mentioned, but he doesn’t seem like the best dad in the world. Sophie is really kind and she might have more heart-breaking family problems than Tree. She expects more from her parents but she tries to be satisfied. I want to know her parents’ job. I think it’ll be unique. Some similarities between Tree and Sophie's family would be that they both have some sort of problems between their parents. But I think there are more differences than similarities. First of all, Tree's dad acts more like a dad and he cares more for his children. He really shows that he loves and cares for Tree. On the other hand, Sophie's dad looks like he doesn't care at all. Also, Tree's parents try to make him stay in a better environment. I think Tree's parents are more friendly.
Tree's family and Sophie's family are kind of similar because both their parents are divorced, and busy scheduled. And they are both going through the tough time. Tree's family and Sophie's family are somehow different, because Tree's family is even though the parents are divorced, they are still kind, not mean to each other. But Sophie's family is kind of worse.
