Response to Lit.(So B. It)

Have you ever known a person that is mentally disable? In So B. It, mama is the one that is mentally disabled. The problem of the story is that Heidi wants to find out what soof means. Heidi finds a roll of film and then shows it to mama. Later they decide to go to the Liberty Hill. Heidi had guess a lucky number at Liberty Hill. Elliot kept calling Heidi soof. Heidi had met Thurman Hill (grandpa), Roy, and Ruby. Thurman Hill had asked for a private moment with Heidi. Heidi had found out what soof means, but mama dies. Sometimes you need to risk things for chances.

Heidi is a very curious person. She like to find out things. Bernie is a very kind and helpful person. Bernie is a person that would try to help mama. Mama is a person that would try to learn as many thing as possible. She would try to get a lot of information.

The setting is in Liberty Hill. Liberty Hill is the main setting. They also went to Nevada. They also went t Roy’s house. Also the bus station is another setting.

The theme is you need to risk something for chances. Heidi had risk a guess a number For a prize. Heidi also plays with mama. She tries to find out what soof means.

I think the book is a good book. I think some people would like to read this book. I think that the book was a sad book because mama only knows 23 words and she died at the end of the book. The theme is that you need to risk something to have a chance.
