Literary Analysis - Red Scarf Girl

Is the book’s structure chronological or does it move back and forth between past and present?  Does the author use a single (first or third person) viewpoint or shifting points of view?  Why might the author have chosen to tell the story this way and how does it influence the reader’s understanding?

In this book, Ji-Li Jiang's experiences, are shown in chronological order. The author most likely used this technique to show hoe ideas evolved in that time. The author also wrote the book in first-person. This means that it is through Ji-Li Jiang's point of view. The author might have also use this technique to have the reader really understand what she was going through. Together, these two writing techniques take the reader through the journey that the character is going through; therefore, helping the readers understanding of the book.
