  1. No I wouldn’t because the Country wouldn’t want me and who ever i live with might not let me go there.

  2. This taught me a lot about children who are traveling and what they have to go through to make it alive and how brave they had to be.

  3. Yes, I would leave my home and family to go to another country for my life. I know that it might be hard to leave everything I love, but the struggle in life is what teaches you to become stronger. The struggles in this book did seem hard to get past, (I probably couldn’t make it) but in the end they made it to where they needed to go, and still alive! This book had taught me a lot of things, one example is that there is no reason for me to complain about my life or my problems, compared to theirs. I would recommend this book for everyone of all ages and sizes.

  4. If I was in Jaime and Angela’s shoes, I would leave my home for a country that doesn’t want me. I would leave because I know it would be easier for my family to know that I was on my way to safety. Also, it would make me stronger and braver. Then, I wouldn’t want to get killed in front of people just because I refused to join a group.
