    The images I decided to go with my the quotes I chose because I feel like they give a short summary of the quote. The background I picked for my cover was chosen because it was the only one that appealed to me.

    • Jesus,
      I enjoyed how you read this novel and what you noticed. Once you read deeper into a novel you can take in and have a fonder understanding of the author. By doing this you’re able to relate to him more and take the information in a different way. I read a book by Greg Boyle that had the same idea. Boyle ran Homeboy Industries that focused on gang reforming and it changed my view on gang life and gave me a deeper respect for those who work to resolve it. I would advise you to read it if you’re able to.

    • Jesus,
      I had never heard of kinesthetic imagery before, so I was interested in what you had to say and how it related to this book you read. I agree with your point about things being hidden in the details of author’s work. Make sure you continue to be aware of things like this. Here is a link to an article more about kinesthetic imagery. https://literarydevices.net/kinesthesia/
      I enjoyed reading your work, thank you for sharing.
