Monument 14
Sky on Fire
By: Emmy Laybourne
Thesis Statement
In the fictional novel,
Monument 14 Sky on Fire
, Emmy Laybourne uses characterization, symbolism, and tone to show that love and hope can overcome any obstacle.

Indirect Characterization
Laybourne uses actions to support the theme by indirectly characterizing Dean as a determined character: "I ran for it with everything I had" (199).

Tone
A grim tone is conveyed using diction. "We just drove over a body lying right in the road. The thumps were
sick
and though we couldn't
hear
them over the engine, we could
feel
them. The body had a
heavy
give to it as we went over it. A
meaty
,
heavy
give, if that even makes sense." (12)

Symbolism
An example of symbolism in the story is the bus. I believe it symbolizes the groups hope for survival. It is the only thing that can allow them to make the long journey to the airport.
Symbolism
Another method to support the theme is symbolism. Laybourne uses the battery-powered floodlights as an example of symbolism. It symbolizes the hope that the group has of getting to safety. "Every 200 yards or so, there are big, battery-powered floodlights. These are good: 1. They lead the way. 2. They help us to see better as we pass. 3. They give us hope that there's someone looking out for us."(11)
