The end to the book Breaking Through was a very predictable story. I believe this because at the end of the book gets accepted to Santa Clara University, and this is an auto biography of Francisco Jiménez life as a migrant child, and Francisco is a professor at Santa Clara University. You need to go to college to be a proffesor.
After reading The Circuit by Francisco Jiménez, I think that the author wants us to realize the poverty that he went through, and what his family did to make ends meet. An example from the text is, when he was twelve years old he was working in the freezing cold with his father and older brother and the author explains this by saying, "Within seconds my toes were numb and I could hardly move my fingers. My hands were turning red and purple" (#)59.
Panchito is like me because he is always trying to prove himself to his family, an example is Panchito wants a cotton sack of his own and I'm trying to get a phone of my own. The point in the book when I realized I couldn't put the book down is at the chapter El Angel de Oro, because this is when Panchito got his first friend Miguelito.
The main characters of the story are Thomas and Teresa. Thomas is an outgoing motivated person who is always tying to prove himself. Teresa is a girl who always keeps things to herself and is always willing to help.
Thomas is a teenager who is dumped into the glade with other teens, all boys. They have no clue anything about themselves except their first names. Then a girl comes, the first girl ever, and the note she delivers is terrifying.
This book helped me learn to be grateful for what I have, and to live life to the very fullest.
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend because it a perfectly balanced emotion of drama and action. James Dashner was great.
