- Setting Analysis
This story take place in Haiti and in a boat.
 I think this author chose this setting because she wanted to
express her experience as a Haitian .
 This story relate to the work as a whole because, without
these peoples and all those problems in Haiti would not
be a story.

-CHARACTER ANALYSIS PART2

Choose 1 character and explain how they changed/grew
throughout the story.
One important character that grew and changed
throughout the story was Celianne because, she was raped
by 13 men then she got pregnant but, she didn’t lose the
hope of change her life to a better one by having her
baby and trying to get a better life in other country even
when she treated to do that in a bad way
-THEME

I think the theme of this story is Social injustice because,
the government do many injustice against the country.
How the narrators tell us no just the government do social
injustice, the people in their own country do injustice too
like when Madame Roger went to find her son’s body and
the army only give her the head and she waked throw all
the Haitian capital with the head and some peoples
making fun of it. Also because the raped that the army
did with Celianne that marked her for the rest of her life.
-OPINION

In my opinion It was a interested and sad story because I
learned a lots of things that I didn’t know that happen in
Haiti even when story is only a fiction but I know that
many of this things happen in Haiti. Also tell us how much
we could be in love with someone even if you have to
leave that person. This story was a little weird because, it
never tell us the end or what happened then with the
characters .
