A few push-pins specifically stand out to me and in turn reflect major points in the novel. First, the pin at the Statue of Liberty reveals the entrance of the immigrant family into the city. The detailed description of the Statue foreshadows the immigrant life ahead of the family. Additionally, the image of the railway explosion posted by Maya does a great job of showing what the experience would have felt like to David. It helps illuminate the experience in the eyes of a child. The pins overall, however, show each other’s distance from one another. They show the overlapping experiences of David’s large, but physically small, world.
