Rocket Boys Ellie, Elena, Layton
ConclusionAll Sonny wants is his dad’s approval and love but instead his dad just runs to the minds or makes up an excuse • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzOH54GemVo “For the next several weeks, he retreated to the mine, coming home after I was in bed, and leaving before I was awake” “He doesn’t know what he wants to be”
Conclusion Homer achieves his goal in spite of his Dads disapproval. Pg. 95 I knew he was justifiably angry, considering how stupid I’d been to launch our uncontrolled missiles so close to the mine. Pg. 39 I thought to myself, I ought to follow them, maybe take up residence in the woods for a year or two. But I was caught. Pg. 41 Just then, I heard the black phone ring and saw Dad through the living- room window as he ran to answer the phone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjWIt1-Kogg
ConclusionWith Sonny’s mom, Elsie the only one supporting his rocket building, family tension arises. “Elsie, I don’t care about any other boys, just take care of this one before he embarrasses me all over Coalwood.” (40,41) http://youtu.be/IjMTiKtwyKk
