Early in the novel, Bud talks about how much he’s been through over the years, and he tells the reader that “his eyes don’t cry no more”. However, at the end of Chapter 14, Bud starts to cry despite his best efforts to control it and hide his emotions. Why do you think Bud cried after so long with having “eyes that don’t cry no more”? What about this particular moment brought him to tears when nothing else would?
Remember what makes a good comment. It should be thoughtful and reflective, and it should explain your opinion. Don’t just tell us what you think, tell me why you came to the conclusion you did. You can also respond to your classmates’ opinions if you would like to add your thoughts to one of their comments. A thoughtful comment should be more than a sentence or two. I’m excited to hear your thoughts!
