Select one area where suspense was created. What details of the plot helped to create this suspense? 1.
I think that the theme of the story is that no matter how far you are from your family, you always love each other. To add onto that theme
idea if bad things happen to you, you need to be positive, accepting to the truth, and handle it well. All you need is to be patient and get through it, no matter how hard it is. 2.
We think that the emotion is manly created at the beginning. Only
because it introduces the losing of a child, a brother, and a family
member. "When I was four I disappeared. I vanished into a maw of the
Ontario child system..." and "It was hardest on my brother..." We all
feel pathos, sympathy, and empathy for him and his family.
3.
We felt pathos for him when he was taken away from his family "When I was four I disappeared. I vanished into a maw of the Ontario child system..." Only because we feel pity and sorrow for him, for him to lose his parents and his brother. We feel empathy for him and his brother. Only because they can't see each other every single day. They have educational /job reasons of living in two different places. "We don't get too much time to visit anymore. Job, geography..." We fell sympathy for his family
members, because they lost a son/brother "For 20 years the little family I left behind wondered if I was alive and, if I was, where I was and what I was like." 1.
The protagonist are Charles and the narrator and then the antagonist is the children's aid society. 2.
Narrator

- Lonely - The reason he is lonely, is because he is away from his family despite, being reunited with them.
"We don't get to much time to visit anymore. Jobs, geography..."

- Loving - The reason he is loving, is because of the relationship between him and his brother. They were separated for 20 years, but they still love each other like they would if they lived together.
"I miss him. Despite the double decade absence, we manage to reconnect to each other, and there's a part of him that travels with me in everything."

- Competitive - The reason he is competitive, is because when he was playing with his brother on the ice darning Christmas he played very rough.
"...Added a little hip as they swiped the puck from the other's stick. Soon the game become a frantic chase complete with bone-jarring checks, elbow, trips, and over-the-shoulder taunts as we whirled around the rink..." 3.
Charles is motivated by his brother and wanting to see him again. The narrator is motivated by missing his brother and family because he hasn't seen them in so long. The Children's Aid Society is motivated by trying to help children. 4.
Throughout the story the narrator goes through changes. The mood/atmosphere of
the story is sad at first because of the narrator is gone, and then it turns to a happier mood because he's back home and, out having fun and reunited with his family again. 5.
Some minor characters would be the uncles of the Wagamese family, their role is to show that the narrator never really had a chance to get to know his own family and says to them he will always be "the one who went away". 1.
The physical setting of the story is in Ontario. It doesn't give us a specific place in Ontario, but we can guess where it is around from
other details in the story. 2.
The setting will change from cultural significance. Only because they are not comfortable with English. Therefore will have different point of view, style, language, and traditions. So the setting will be around all those aspects that affect their culture. 4.
The point of view in this story is first person. Only because the little boy is the one who was taken away when he was four, and then found 20 years later. Therefore, it is first person. We think that the point of view is very effective because the events of the story are all happening to the narrator. It is the narrator that is telling us the readers what happened to him, and how his relationships are now and were. 5.
We chose the section in the story that tells us about the two brothers catching up at Christmas. On page 81 line 29 to page 82 line 10. The mood/atmosphere of this section is very loving, exciting, real, caring, and happy. Details of the plot do contribute to the feeling of the story. Only because the plot separated the two brothers, and the section that we chose reunites the two brothers again. "I arrived a few days before the rest and we had a chance to spend hours and hours together..." 1.
Conflict 1: He was taken by children's aid Society and was separated from his family since 1959.

Conflict 2: The complicated relationship between him and his family (especially his brother), they are trying to rekindle the long lost relationship. 2.
When Charles and him are playing hockey and they start out playing all sweet and simple, but then as the game goes on they become more relaxed and play more aggressive and have a great time. 4.
The best area of suspense was when Charles and him were playing hockey, and they were playing nice and gentle (almost distant). As I was reading the story I was wondering if they were going to play an awkward game of hockey the whole time, or are they going to really bond...

The quote that helped to create the suspense is: "At first it was tentative. Our passes were soft, unchanging, and our sticks loose, casual, smooth. We didn't talk much except to mutter the usual, appreciative "nice," "good one," "great shot," and perhaps the odd "ooh" and "ah" at something especially well done." 3.
On Bristol Board 3.
The setting affects the plot. Since the plot was the two brothers getting separated, the setting proves that. But they were in two different places. If the brothers were in the same setting, there wouldn’t be a plot. The setting put the two brothers in the position, that they can’t see each other anymore. We thought that there wasn’t a range of choices available to the main character. Only because the main character didn’t have a choice to be taken away. 5.
