I read this book as an immigrant child just starting to learn about the English language and Western culture. Although the obvious theme of the importance of language was there but, the one thing that stood out to me as I finished this book, was the beauty and intricacy of the relationship between a teacher and a student. I had come from South Korea where respect was foremost in learning, but this book challenged this idea and gave so many reasons as to why the act of challenging authority does not always point to disobedience, but rather, allows the potential for a student to flourish to strive to prove a teacher wrong, in a meaningful way.
