4 a)Nicky who was from England visited to New York to see his aunt, but he was involved in something bad before meeting her.
b)I liked that a taxi driver helped Nicky to take him to the place which his aunt came to.

5.If I am kidnapped by strange people and I am misunderstood as a thief, I cannot do anything at all. I thought he should have had more money and a cellphone.

4. Nicky needed to get on the boat in an hour, but it was impossible to be there on time without using taxi. And then one taxi helped him with no pay.
I like this passage because I felt kind from this taxi driver. Sometimes, people should help someone without begging returns.
5. I could enjoy reading with this book! Contents were all interesting and it was easy to read! I don't usually enjoy rea
