Quotes for Fitting In
Summary of Lost Garden
By: Laurence Yep
The lost Garden was about Laurence Yep's life when he was a child and the challenges he faced.
He didn't know whereand even if he would he could fit in.He called himself an american.
When Moon Shadow moved to his dad in the Land of the Golden Mountain, he had trouble learning the language they had there. His dad would translate to him sometimes, but throughout the book, he has trouble learning the Tang's people language. The quotes below are evidence that Windrider had to translate sometimes for Moon Shadow because it was hard for Moon to understand.
Overall fitting in is very difficult. For example in Lost Garden the officer didn't tell the captain that teens robbed their store. The officer put it in the circular bin which is the garbage.
In Dragonwings, Moon Shadow has to adapt to the new culture in the Land of the Golden Mountain. Of course, he needed to learn the language, english. His Father, Windrider, would translate for him. He also has to adapt to the food they eat, the clothes they wear, and the general activities they do.
