characterized the childhoods affection towards Gelas innocence, by this he
focus on how can a reader adjust on the little girl attitude. Another is the

uses a connection between the childhoods tricky memories which is playing


together with her friend Pitong who has an edible-insect Beetle to which Gela
found her temporary happiness for a while.
