For picture number one I took a picture over the fence of this almost desert like field behind my house. This is to represent all the times that they mention them feeling dirty or their teeth feeling gritty.
For picture two I took a picture of our back patio. It is fenced in and there isn´t much space to even look at. This is to represent how they were caged in and felt cramped.
The third picture is of my dogs shock collar that we no longer use. It has kept her listening to us. (we only ever used the beeper since it did the trick and didn´t need to use the shock or buzz all that often since they didn´t help with her.) This idea though to keep people in check also applies to the electric fence that is strong enough to kill someone just with a touch.
Photo four is of my basement that isn´t scary whatsoever with the lights on but with them off your imagination can go wild. This is to refer to the fact that they didn´t know what would happen to them in the beginning. They also felt like the escape was so close yet seemed so far with little light shed on it.
The fifth image is of a baseball park that I live next to. There were some ball games but since my dog isn´t the best people person we stayed away. This was to represent that they felt like they were forced away from society because of who they are and what they believe.
The final image is just of me walking my dog. This is one of my favorite things to do with her. This relates to how they were forced to leave what they love to do and the people they loved the most. None of them expected any of it but all had to suffer the same.
I feel like the conflicts in this story are almost at the climax but I like the details they kept in and skipped over for ease of reading. In the beginning everything seemed to move fast. All of a sudden time flew by and we didn´t even know. I feel like things are starting to slow down though as we are coming to the final parts of the book.
