Chanda's Secrets Character Trait Presentation
Character Trait
Responsibility
Theme Statement
In the book "Chanda's Secrets by Allan Stratton it shows us that when one takes responsibility, it forces them to make sacrifices that can lead to loss of innocence.
Connection to Self
A connection I have is that I try to take as much responsibility as I can. I take the responsibility and when I know I have to do things for my family, I'll limit the amount of time I spend doing other recreational things.
Connection to Society
I think that society tells most of the younger generation now to live life and figure out who they want to be. They don't put enough emphasis on how important it is to take responsibilities for any actions they do. I think if society taught people that we wouldn't have to hear about all the troubled stories of other people.
Quote #2
"I wanted to scream what was happening. But I figured he'd just deny it and I'd get in trouble. Even worse, if Mama believed me, she'd say we had to leave - we'd be homeless with nothing to eat and it would be all my fault." (Stratton 17)
Analysis of Quote 2
This quote shows how Chanda took the responsibility and sacrificed herself for her family. She thinks about her family and how they could be affected so she sacrificed herself and her innocence as Isaac molested her at a young age.
Quote #1
" ' So you've been sent to make the arrangements by yourself.' I nod and stare at the small cigarette burn on his lapel. 'I'm sixteen' ." (Stratton 3)
Analysis of Quote 1
This quote shows how Chanda takes the responsibility to go to Mr. Bateman's funeral service for Sara's funeral plans because she's sixteen. Chanda knows she must take the responsibility and accepts losing her childhood (innocence) to care for her family. While most teenagers care about living their life and figuring out their futures (as Esther shows) Chanda is forced to take on an adult role and learns about how to plan a funeral for her sister.
Theme Statement
In the book "Chanda's Secrets" by Allan Stratton it shows us that when one takes responsibility, it forces them to make sacrifices that can lead to loss of innocence.
Overall, Chanda shows us that when one takes responsibility, it forces them to make sacrifices that can lead to loss of innocence. She shows us this by taking responsibility to care for her family and sacrificing herself and her innocence for the well being of others.
