Red from Green Essay
The novel is written by Maile Meloy. The main character in the novel is Sam Turner. Sam just turned fifteen years. The story is written as if it was in the past, as we can see in the text, which is seen in the first sentence“. The summer she turned fifteen”. Sam and her father lives together in Montana and every summer they take a four-day float trip down the river, which is in the text “[…]It was a four day float trip, or five if you dawdled, or three if her father had to get back to work” . Sam’s mother is dead, but the text does not say how or when. Sam goes to a boarding school and in the fall she is a sophomore, but she is seriously doubt about this, and she doesn’t know if she would go there. It was her father’s idea, and she hasn’t accepted yet, which indicates that she feels compassion for her father and she will not leave him alone. Sam is a shy girl, because when Layton compliments her teeth she gets suspicious from the praise, which is in ...view middle of the document...

 There is also a moment in the text where Sam’s father leave Sam and Layton while they sitting around the bonfire. Sam is not happy about this and she is a little bit nervous, but she doesn’t say anything. The reason why didn’t say anything to him, could mean that she doesn’t trust him, and that she is afraid of problems. Sam’s relationship with her father is complicated, and the reason for this could be the deceased mother, maybe she misses a mother in her life, who can take care of her.

The story takes place in the summertime by a river in Montana in a hot July month. There is a lot of sun on the trip, and the environment is great and there is a lot of fresh air. Sam and the other lives in tents and burrows and some nights they make a bonfire and sits there.
When Sam goes shooting with Layton, the big hills make sure that her father doesn’t hear the noise, which seen in the text ““Can they hear it? I don’t think so, with those hills,” he said. “Anyway, we’re legal. We’re not killing anything.”

The themes in the text are different, for example ‘the relationship between daughter and father’ or ‘growing up’, but I think that the main theme in the text is ‘development’ from teenager to adult or from girl to woman. Through the story Sam is starting to act older, as we can see in the text where Layton says ‘Sam stepped back and pointed the gun at the bottle, not really breathing’ where she try to shoot. There is an episode where Sam and Layton where together, here she feels something new and it’s here she feels the adulthood and nervousness, this seen in the text “The right side of her body was warm from the fire, the left side was cold”. Sam has never experienced a man who is sexual interested to her, so when Layton shows her his interest, she does not known how to react.
There are some symbolism in the text. I think that the title ‘Red from green’ indicate that Sam has gone from being a teenager to being an adult, and if you look at the symbolism of the colors. Red symbolizes innocence while the color Green symbolizes experience, which we can see in the text. Sam come through a big development, where she in the begging is a little bit innocent and then she comes through some experiences for example, when she decides to try to shoot and, so you can also read the title as “teenager to adult”.
