Historical questions to ask yourself while you are reading:


1. What is going on during the time period of your book? (war, drought, excess of money, prejudices, political unrest, etc.)
WAR
2. How does that element affect the plot, setting, and characters of your book? It affects the story because during that time
war was bigger and kids had to fight in the war because they didnt have anyone else to fight with them.
3. Why did the author use this time period? He used this time period because the war was bigger and the children had to
fight to live because they needed more soldiers to fight.

1. What is the human rights issue in my novel?
That the kids cant do what all kids grow up doing. They have to fight wars and do adult stuff before even growing up.
