Story relationship with my life- * Even though this story does not relate to my life because Sugar Mae Cole has gone through many harsh and depressing struggles in her life that I have not yet experienced before, this story touched my heart like no other story has in a long time. This story taught me a lesson to persevere and never give up. Sugar Mae Cole has not only become a character that I think about day and night, but she has become my new role model! Summary: By: Sabrina Hernandez
May 7, 2013 Almost Home * Most of the story's setting takes place in the streets of inner city Chicago. * The setting impacts the story because it makes more sense to the reader for it to be in that area, because there is a lot of homeless people in the inner city of Chicago. When twelve-year-old Sugar's grandfather dies and her gambling father takes off and abandons the family, Sugar and her mother lose their home in Missouri. They head to Chicago for a fresh start, only to discover that fresh starts aren't so easy to come by for the homeless. Nevertheless, Sugar's mother has taught her to be grateful no matter what, so Sugar does her best. With the help of rescue dog, Shush; a foster family; a supportive teacher; a love of poetry; and her own grace, perseverance, and good humor, Sugar comes to understand that while she can't control the harsh life that is upon her, she can control how she responds to it.
