Red Scarf Girl
I chose this image to represent the chapters we read because in Ji-Li's family's quest to rid their house of "Four Olds", they have to paint these beautiful red and gold trunks black, even though they are very sentimental to the Grandmother.
Occurring in these chapters as well, Ji-Li starts to have conflicting thoughts about the revolution, twisting and confusing her mind and heart about what is right and wrong. She struggles to feel like she is supporting Mao, while still supporting her friends and family.
