Essay Topic 3

John's third ring appears while he is out with friends on a boat, and it forces their immediate relocation. It was the longest they had stayed anywhere since arriving on Earth - nine months. Now, he burns his identification and begins again, this time calling himself John Smith. He lives with Henri, his Cêpan, and this move will take them to Paradise, Ohio. John knows he must blend in, which includes doing everything that normal fifteen year old boys must do. That includes going to school. Blending in is difficult at times and John's first day is one of those times.

1. Discuss how the circumstances of John's life, having to hide and move all the time, might affect him as a teenager. Use examples from your life and the book to support your answer.

2. Compare what you think might be John's feelings about being an alien from another planet with what you think might be the feelings of a human who has to move to another country because of persecution in his/her own country on earth. How would the situation be similar and different? Use examples from your life and the book to support your answer.

3. What do you think are some of the difficulties John might have blending in at school and how might those difficulties compare to a foreign student trying to fit in an American school? Use examples from your life and the book to support your answer.
