Tanner’s house trying to help Mr. Tanner find the Ivory-billed woodpecker and this creates the mood of hopeful.On page 27, it said”When she got home that night,covered in mud,exhausted,her neck sore from looking up all day,she told her family she was giving up.Gills ever give up Hannah’s father said...we will help you Hannahs mother said”(smith). This confirms that hannah won’t stop looking for the ivory-billed woodpecker because Gills never give up.Then Hannah’s family will help hannah to look for the woodpecker to so that Mr.Tanner can have his property protected. In contrast,In “Following Boo”,Nathan goes inside the woods tripping and and getting cut by the things around him but then the cut on his foot disappears when he puts his foot in a stream,this creates a mood of interested.An example is “Let’s go, I finally told Boo.And that’s when I noticed it:The skin on my feet was completely healed-new as baby’s skin.How could that be possible?I shivered”(pyron).Based on this evidence the setting creates the mood interested because from that detail Nathens foot got healed as new as baby’s skin. That would interest someone because skin does not heal out of nowhere. In conclusion, these two stories have setting that creates two different moods.

She is constantly embarrassed to even be seen with her grandmother.One piece of evidence that points to this is,”Right up to the time when we’re supposed to pick up the old lady at the airport, my mother is telling me stories about how hard times were for la familia on la isla, and how la abuela worked night and day to support them after their father died of a heart attack” (Cofer 2).

She also does not have much sympathy for her grandmother considering her difficulty at home. Likewise, she continues to treat her grandmother with disrespect.

Andrew Lam feels guilt and shame when he heard his mother's remark: “Who will light incense to the dead when I’m gone” (Lam). Lam’s mother is worried that when she dies, their Vietnamese culture will be forgotten due to the modern American culture Lam has adapted to. His aunt replies to her worries and utters that when they die the rituals will end because the youth and future of the family do not understand the Vietnamese traditions.
