    1. Examples of using quotes:
      1. Christopher knew he could not live with his father because he was afraid of him. Christopher wrote, “Father had murdered Wellington. That meant he could murder me” (Haddon 122).

        Christopher was able to face his fear of strange places because it was balanced with his fear of his father. He explained he was both “frightened of being far away from a place I was used to” and “frightened of being near where Father lived”, “so the total fear remained a constant” (Haddon 136).
