Our story is first person because it says the word “I” in most of the parts we read, and because it is in the form of a journal. If it was in 3rd person it would say, “Leigh went to the store”. 2nd person would say, “He went to the store”. First person point of view would say , “I went to the store”
Our book’s genre is realistic-fiction. It is realistic-fiction because there are divorces, strays, and truckers that are never home. Those things are all real. There are so many divorces in the world. It’s just wrong. There are so many strays put out on the street each year. If they don’t get fed soon, they could eventually die. Strider got took in , which happens in the real world too. Truckers are never home too. On trucking shows, the truckers are always away from their family. That is reality. This is a good realistic-fiction story.
In the community , people lose and gain jobs everyday. Losing jobs hurt people, because they lose more and more money. When they lose all of their money, they have to give their stuff away. Like how Leigh's dad had to give his truck. People also gain jobs, like when Leigh’s dad got another job. When you gain a job you gain money. People lose and gain jobs like Leigh's dad.
