_____________________________________.

on page 147? (3 marks)

Full Answer (using sentence starters and PEE) :

When Niang shouts “Come here!”, Adeline obeys while showing great fear. The writer
uses the phrase “approached” to suggest __________________________________. It
is as if she walks slowly to delay the consequence she is about to face. The writer also
combines this with “gingerly” and “trembling with terror” to show that Adeline is
extremely scared. “Gingerly” creates a feeling of
_____________________________________. The phrase “trembling with terror” has
alliteration of _______________, which sounds ______________________.
