A Miracle To The Houseboat Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
The Miracle is an appropriate name for the houseboat. There are many reasons in the text why this is an appropriate name. For instance, in paragraph eleven and twelve, it states, “There was only one catch: it was resting on the muddy bottom of the Illinois River. "It was a real mess," Chad remembers. "The most totally trashed thing you've seen in your life. After a lot of repair work and elbow grease, The Miracle became the crew's floating home and headquarters—a big step up from tents and tarps.” This shows that Chad probably thought it was a miracle that after a lot of repair, it became their floating home and headquarters. It was also a miracle because that houseboat was bringing his dream to a reality for him.
