Stop and Jots
1.I thought this book was very sad and touching because of how Jessie was very poor, her mother died and she went to America by herself when she was 13. I liked how it used the again and again signpost by saving coins in a jar. I disliked how it ended at a cliffhanger of grandma made it to the wedding of Jessie and Lu.
2. What I like about historical fiction is how America made people from other countries come to America for free. What I disliked is how you had to wait in line and then make money.
3. I was thinking how did out of all people Jessie found Lu. I want to know more about that because there was a lot of people in America and Jessie just found him.
