Look again the section where Adeline is left alone at the end of the school day. Do you think Adeline's fathe is a responsible parent? How would you feel if you were her? (CH 6)

Adeline's father is a terrible dad. He is indifferent to his own daughter and forgets about her. Adeline is excited to return to school, this time attending Sacred Heart (Shen Xin 聖心) Missionary School, but it doesn’t look like she’ll make it in time since her family has once again forgotten about her existence. Luckily, she’s able to catch a ride from the reluctant cook and makes it just in time. Afterschool, she is left lonely as well and with no one there to take her home, Adeline struggles to find her way in her brand new surroundings. Late in the evening, a kindly shopkeeper notices the lost little Adeline and shelters her in a restaurant until Adeline can phone home. Her family truly had forgotten about her existence and the only advice Father had to offer was to learn to read a map.
