During this beginning experience in particular, Lavvy realizes how difficult her mission will be to help discover the truth about what happened to Isaac after he was captured.

    The literary elements the author used in Chapter 3, 4, and 5 is Allusion, Amplification, and Characteristics, and Anthropomorphism.
