Transcript of Nowhere to Call Home by Nick Rich

Chapter 4-5
A historical fact that I had was Harmonica. A question that I had was why does Junius not want Frances to go with him? My quote that I had was "But can't you take me with you? Please Junius?" I can infer that Frankie doesn't want Junius to leave her.
Chapter 1
Historical facts that I got from this chapter was the Stock Market crashed, the Great Depression, and Black Tuesday and Black Thursday. A question that I had for this chapter was what caused the Great Depression? A direct quote that I found was "Is father ill?" A prediction that I got was that father was sick and is hurting.
Chapter 2
The location where Frankie was is Philadelphia. A fact that I found was that the banks were closing on houses. A direct quote that I found was "Men who once was millionaires are sellin' on the street!" Its crazy to see that people were once millionaires, were selling apples.
Chapter 3
Some historical facts that I found were "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Uncle Reimas Stories, The Call of the Wild, and Great Expectations. A important event that I had was that Mr. Fletcher handed Frances a train ticket to leave.
