    I think people would enjoy reading The Serpents Child. The serpe

    I think people would enjoy reading The Serpents Child. The serpent’s child is a good book to teach people how to get through struggles and this book can also teach people how strong a family bond is. Also teen readers can connect with the characters because Cassia and Foxfire are growing up too. I agree with the first comment that sometimes it can be a little dry but, it doesn’t affect the overall message that the book is trying to convey. Cassia the main character can teach the reader about true struggles because throughout the whole she has to endure some of the hardest. Her mother dies and she feels a responsibility to take care of her brother and her father. Her struggle can really have an effect on the reader. For a while Cassia and her brother are all alone to fend for themselves because their father is off fighting with the work and their mother had just died. The family bond in this book is very strong because they are all they have, the town ignores them because they are said to be serpent children. When Cassia’s uncle tries to bind her feet foxfire tells them to stop and helps his sister get away even though at the time he is younger. The Characters in this book are easy for teens to connect with. Foxfire becomes a man when he chases a wild dream to help his family survive. He ventures into America or what they call demon-land to send money home so Cassia and his crippled father won’t starve. My Favorite character is Foxfire. He is my favorite character because even after his father disowns him he still risked his life across seas to save his family. He can still love his father with his foolishness and Cassia even though she was never supportive of his ideas. I like that he has inner strength because that is the best kind of strength to have. My favorite Quote is said by Cassia “Forgive me father,” I said cautiously, “but after everything he’s been through he’s not a boy anymore, he’s a man.” (Yep 273) This is my favorite quote because Cassia realizes her brothers true strength and then she stands up to her father even though she always sticks by him. She stood up to him and told him that he was wrong about foxfire and that he is a man. This quote made the lesson of the book all so clearer. It shows the importance of family and how strong the bond is even across oceans
