Favorite character

My favorite character has to be Debera. She is fun and a great character. She disobeys her dad and goes to Telgar’s hatching where she impresses Morath. You see in the book the as she grows up and learns weyr tradition that she is a great person. She cares about other people as you see with the help see gives Iantine.

In the book the common people get into trouble because they are uneducated and they aren’t able to read their rights given to them in the Charter. There are many things in education that governments and communities fight over. There are debates ranging from music education to how much money any district can have even here in Utah.
