If you had to give pages 17-33 a chapter title, what would it be and why? Use text evidence to support your opinion. Design this page to reflect your response.
I'd title pages 5-17 Lightning Doesn't Strike the Same Place Twice...Or Does It? There are several reasons I'd give these pages this title. One reason is that Paul is woken up in the middle of the night because lightning strikes twice. The text says, "I woke up in the dark to the sound of an explosion"(12). While looking for his glasses, they are "illuminated by a flash of lightning" (13). He quickly falls back asleep after this, but wakes up in the morning to smoke and a smell. We learn these are the muck fires in the fields behind Paul's new house, and they are triggered by lightning strikes. Another reason I'd name these pages this is because I know that lightning can strike the same place twice, and it seems like lightning is striking the same place more than once (the field behind Paul's house) because Wayne says it happens often.
