I opened the door and was surprised to see Phoebe not on the bed, but the floor. She had somehow noodled her way to the floor rug. “Child, what are you doing on the floor?” “I’m slowly decomposing on the floor!” Phoebe said perfectly sane. “Did Simon actually understand you? !” I chucked the bottle at here and laughed as she pathetically tried to roll over and failed.
Rhetorical Strategy: Shameful diction, repetition, and metaphor Analysis: Throughout the beginning of her speech, Kelly makes sure to gain her audience’s attention by saying, “…while we sleep…” (18,29,35). Through the use of repetition and metaphor, she lets all the adults in the audience know that every evening, while they sleep peacefully, innocent little children go to work all night. This brings a feeling of guilt and sorrow to the audience, and opens their eyes up to how bad the situation really is. With shameful diction and a regretting tone, Kelly try’s to further her main argument by getting the adults in the audience to take the blame for this and realize the true wickedness in what Kelly is trying to stop. 7.

And then one night, after we had finished our normal routine, I laid in bed wanting to know what happened next in the book, feeling like I needed to know right then and there how Serious Black got into Hogwarts. Not being able to take the suspense anymore I that I would quietly get off of my bed and tippy toe to my sister’s night stand and quickly grabbed the book and her flash light, and scurry back onto my own bed before she realized I was even there. I immediately tossed my blankets back bent half of my body over the edge to make sure the cost was clear and that she was asleep. I peered my eyes over just enough to see if she was sleeping but, to my surprise she wasn’t sleeping at all. She had her blanket over her head and was shining her flashlight.
A couple of nice police officers are here to ask us a few questions.” With a great amount of coaxing, Hannah crawled out from under the bed like a scared cat. Her eyes were huge bowls of light. “How long will this take?” “It will only take a few minutes.” I paused. “Hannah, you have been the bravest little girl tonight than I have ever known. I love you.” Hannah’s eyes lit up like a thousand stars as she clasped me for what seemed like an eternity in a sweet embrace.
Delia being very anxious about being in the house and not knowing where the snake is, she knows if she does not start on the laundry she will be behind for the week. It is not until she starts sorting laundry that she sees the snake and drops everything and runs out of the house where she falls asleep in the hayloft. Not long after falling asleep, she is awoken by the sound of Sykes in his drunken stupor. Banging around in the house, Sykes aware the snake is loose tries to light the lamp so that he can see. As Delia states, “whatever goes over the Devil’s back, is got to come under his belly.” Maybe if Sykes were a faithful man and not so abusive, he would not be in the mess he is in now.
The first picture in the book shows a child, a little girl, who has just woken in the early morning, the caption reads “Sometimes the day begins with nothing to look forward to” (Tan, 2011a) . The child is sitting up in her bed; she appears to be forlorn and deep in thought, her shoulders are slightly slumped and her eyes are down cast.
