For this blog post, I will be talking about three different chapters in the book:”Why Chicken Means so Much to Me,” “Slouching Toward Thanksgiving”, and “Dance, Dance, Dance.”
First I will be talking about the chapter “Why Chicken Means so Much to Me.” This chapter title relates to the chapter because the whole thing is about why fried chicken means so much to Junior. It means so much to him because it is a special treat. He almost never gets good food because his family is so poor. The chapter title relates to the whole book because it is about his family being poor.
The next chapter is “Dance, Dance, Dance.” The chapter is called this because it is about Junior going to his school dance. In the chapter Penelope and Roger figure out that Junior is poor and they both feel bad for him. Roger gives him a ride because Junior tells him that his dad probably won’t pick him up. This is important to the whole book because his school friends finally find out that Junior is poor.
My last, but not least chapter is “Slouching Toward Thanksgiving.” This chapter is about Junior feeling alone like a zombie. He says he feels kind of lonely, or invisible. It is called this because Junior is actually “slouching toward Thanksgiving.” This chapter title relates to the whole book because he realizes that he has no friends in neither Reardan, or on the rez. He does make friends eventually but later in the book.
