Topic: Nobody's Boy by Hector Malot
Nobody's Boy by far, from the chapter I've read, is going to be a book with a lot of ups and downs moments in it. The main character Remi is a very strong and forgiving person. Remi was a founding until he got adopted by his foster parents. By the age of 8, Remi considered life really normal because his mom would praise him, tuck him in bed, and would used to rock him in the rocking chair until he had no more tears in his eyes.. It gave me a flashback of when I was little and I used to have these moments with my mom all the time. Remi's mom, Mother Barberin, was not a single mom but her husband is a stone-cutter in Paris and hasn't returned to the village since Remi was a baby. It made me wonder, what would it feel like to know that you have a father but not knowing what he looks like and never had really met him. One day a man stopped by their house with a letter from Barberin ( Remi’s foster dad ) and that is he is terribly injured by a falling scaffold. The builder knew Barberin had no business to be near the area and so he refused to pay an indemnity. I understand that he has no business to be near the scaffold area, but this part really got to me because, the person is injured and you can at least pay for an indemnity.
