Beah makes use of flashback and foreshadowing both in this chapter. He calls upon his memory of Junior’s stone-skipping lesson to illustrate the love and care Junior showed him growing up. The older brother’s protection and concern contrast with the present situation, in which Junior is lost in his own thoughts and unable to console or reassure his little brother. These literary divices help convey the contex, themes,t and mood these boys encounter.
