Transcript of The Red Umbrella

Conflicts and Resolution
The Revolution
The main characters from The Red Umbrella are Lucia, Frankie, Manuel Mrs.Baxter, Papa, Mama, Eddie, Jennifer and Ivette. Ivette is Lucia's best friend in Cuba. Eddie is a guy that Lucia has a crush on in the USA. Jennifer is Lucia's best friend is the USA. Frankie is Lucia's little little brother and Manuel is the boy Lucia has a crush on in Cuba. Mrs.Baxter is Lucia and Frankie's "mom" in the USA. Papa and mama are Lucia's parents in Cuba that stayed behind.
The theme of this book is that whenever times are rough do not lose hope and faith.Also I believe it sends a message that you shouldn't take your family for granted. When the main character had to leave her mom and dad for the well being of her brother.So I think this story gives a lot of messages do to the fact people do have to go through this sometimes in ther life.
