    "Even though none of us kids got hurt by the bomb they acted like they were worried about us.  They weren't too worried about Byron and weren't worried at all about Joey, we'd all agreed not to tell her what happened at the church and had left Birmingham that night, before she had a chance to find anything out.  I was kind of surprised because the way Momma and Dad were talking I could tell they were most worried about me. They came out of the kitchen and sat on the couch.  I knew they were talking about me again.  Momma said, 'He's been disappearing, Daniel.  Hours go by and I don't know where he is.' 'What's he say when you ask him where he's been?' 'He tells me he hasn't been anywhere, he says I shouldn't worry.  It's so strange, I call him and he's nowhere to be found but a few minutes later he just pops up.' 'Doesn't Byron know where he goes?' 'He says he doesn't.' 'He is being awfully quiet.'   What information in the passage best supports Kenny's conclusion that Momma and Dad were most worried about him?

    Kenny concludes that Momma and Dad are most worried about him because he overhears them discussing his disappearances. This suggests that they have noticed his frequent absences and are concerned about his whereabouts. This information directly supports Kenny's conclusion that his parents are most worried about him.

      "Momma, please hurry up!" p. 13

    Correct Answer
    C. "Help! He's crying!" pg. 13
    Explanation
    The statement "Help! He's crying!" on page 13 is the best evidence to support why the family finally believed Kenny. This statement indicates that Byron is in distress and crying for help, which would be a clear sign that he is indeed stuck to the rearview mirror. The family would be more likely to believe Kenny's claim if they heard Byron crying and realized the seriousness of the situation.

    • B.

      "The warm air and the highway noise and the Brown Bomber's seat and the way Joey was breathing all pushed me back to sleep.'

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The warm air and the highway noise and the Brown Bomber's seat and the way Joey was breathing all pushed me back to sleep." This is personification because it gives human qualities (the ability to push someone) to non-human things (the warm air, the highway noise, the seat, and Joey's breathing).
