Book: Moloka'i
Author: Alan Brennert

Narrator Point Of View: The narrator of the story is a girl names a Rachel. As of for the point of view, it is from a first person point of view due to the fact that everything is from Rachel's perspective in my opinion. Throughout the story I constantly know how Rachel's feeling and what she's thinking but as of for other characters I only know what they say and obvious emotions.

Mood: As of for moods, I feel mix of emotions throughout the story constantly striving to make me feel grateful, sorrow, frustration and happiness. The author strives to show to me that with all these emotions, how fortunate I am to have to have medical assistance in the way we have it now.

Tone: According to the authors note towards the end of the story, throughout the book the author constantly strived to show ultimate passion for the topic and constantly did research in the topic. The author feels like this is an important topic and strives to show passion towards the novels characters and the book itself.

Blog Post #7

Currently, I am reading Moloka'i by Alan Brennert, which is mainly based around when the disease, leprosy was popular. The Health Board of Hawaii helped maintain this disease by sending you off if affected. The story is based around a seven years old girl who had been affected. Her family hides the situation but one day gets in a fight with her sister who accidently the screams out loud at school, "leprosy girl," which catches the teachers attention. When leaving her parents get emotionally and throughout the journey family is everything. I can connect by the fact that I also care a lot for my family. They mean a lot to me and I can feel her pain when she has to see her family go. When leaving to another island she says quote, "the tip of her fingers just grazed Mama's palm as she passed, the human carrying her away. Rachel would cherish that last touch for years to come, remembering the warmth of her skin, the way her big fingers almost closed around Rachel's, and the desperate love in Mama's face as it was stolen away from her."

"Albus: And it's something I should have said a long time ago. In fact, you're probably the best person I know. And you don't- you don't- you couldn't- hold me back. You make me stronger- and when Dad forced us apart- without you-

Scorpius: I didn't much like my life without you in it either."

The following sentence is from a book called Harry Potter And The Cursed Child. I believe that this sentence overall summarizes the whole point of the book together. Harry Potter decided that his son doesn't have to have certain friendships because of safety. But this sentence makes the audience realize that this isn't true. Friendships are frienships and can help you get through tough times.
