week 3 post A

Recombinant(118)- an organism, cell, or genetic material formed by recombination.
conundrums(124)- a confusing and difficult problem or question.

Figurative language:
"My blood turned to icy slush in my veins."(119)- metaphor
"They were hung in rows on metal hooks, like raggedy coats in a closet."(131)- simile
"It was like looking up and seeing a trains headlights coming right at you, and your feet just can't move off the track."(133)- simile

"Everything you have experienced for the past five months has all been a dream"(117)- This is significant to the book because they bad people are telling the flock that everything within the last 5 months had been a dream. And that the whole thing had been a test to find out how they would react in certain situations.

An emerging theme in the book is that they will get caught then they will escape and then they will get caught again and escape again.
