Transcript of See You at Harry's
"My heart it is beating so fast and so hard. I have to press my hands against it."
I chose this quote because it is the first time that fern actually starts to care about the people she loves. Even though it was rough she still went through with it and appreciated them the best she knew how to.
I would recommend this book to people who like heartbreaking and soul-staining books because See You at Harry's is a great book but at some moments you just want to cry but then you just want to keep on reading to figure out what happens next.
Fern: a 12 year old girl who feels like she is a nobody.
Charlie: is fern's three year old brother who is everybody's center of attention.
Holden: Fern's older brother who has met a new "friend" that he seems to hang out with more then usually.
Sarah: is fern's older sister that is taking a year out of school while looking for a new job that fits her criteria.
Ran: is fern's best friend who helps her in her time of need.
At the restaurant where the family works, play, and do homework.
At her house where they obviously live.
The bus where Holden is picked on.
School where they learn.
Twelve-year-old Fern feels like an outsider. It seems as though everyone in her family has better things to do than pay attention to her: Mom (when she’s not meditating) helps Dad run the family restaurant; Sarah is taking a year out of school after high school; and Holden is always with his new found "friend", even as he fends off bullies at school. Then there’s Charlie: three years old and the center of everyone’s world. He’s devoted to Fern, but he’s annoying, too, always getting his way, always dirty, always commanding attention. If it was not for Ran (Fern’s calm and positive best friend) there’d be nowhere to turn to. Ran always says "All will be well" after fern tells him her problems and occurrences that had happened earlier. And when Ran says it, Fern can almost believe that it's really is true. But then when tragedy strikes- fern feels all alone more then she already had. But also responsible for the accident that has wrenched her family apart. Will she be OK?
The theme is to appreciate what you have been given because you never know when you might lose it all.
This is because Fern doesn't realize how much she has until something that she cares about most is gone. Then when she finally realizes this it's too late she can't take it back. No matter how much she wishes she could. She was very mean and disrespectful and now she wishes that she should have treated people more fairly then she did. Most of all she wished that, she would have appreciated what she had a lot more and actually took in consideration that she could lose the people that she sees everyday.
