As an audience member of the book Orbiting Jupiter, do you think Joseph's character has changed from chapter 1 to chapter 2?
As an audience member to the book, Orbiting Jupiter I think Joseph's character has changed a lot from chapter one to chapter two. One of the reasons I think this is because in chapter one, he didn't answer people when when they spoke to him or include himself in conversations, I think this was because he was getting used to his new home and the other big changes that he was going through in his life. In chapter two, he talks to people more and it might be because he is getting more used to his new home, new school, and new way of living. He has also started talking to Jack more since they walk to school together every day. Joseph might like that he has Jack as someone who doesn't think of him as a guy who tried to killed a teacher or other bad labels that students and teachers could have placed on him because of his past. In chapter two, a teacher named Mr. D'ulney started giving Joseph math questions every day. Mr. D'ulney did this because he noticed that Joseph was really good at math and didn't want to ignore the quality that he saw in him. I think that if Mr. D'ulney did this in chapter one, Joseph might not try to answer the question at all because he was uncomfortable since it was early in the school year, and Joseph could've thought that Mr. D'ulney thought he was dumb because of the bad choices he made in his past and wanted to test it out. But in chapter two, Joseph always completes the math question and returns it to Mr. D'ulney. I think that Mr. D'ulney has made it clear to Joseph that he doesn't judge him for his past and that he sees the positive things about him. Do you think Joseph's character will change again in chapter 3?
