Vanishing Acts - Visuals

courthouse2.jpg
This is a picture of a courthouse in Arizona. I chose it because a lot of the novel takes place in an Arizona courthouse. The courthouse is also where the most important things in this book are said.

I chose this picture because it connects Delia’s career with her past. The book starts out with Delia looking for a child that was lost in the woods. Delia’s career is search and rescue which is a big coincidence.



bloodhound.jpg














This is a picture of a search and rescue bloodhound. I chose it because Delia’s dog, Greta, is a search and rescue bloodhound. Greta proves to be one of the most important things in her life because when she feels like she can’t talk to anyone she sits on the couch and plays with her.


madison_st._jail.jpg
This is a Madison Street Jail. It's the jail that Andrew was transferred to. Andrew thought a lot about what he did in his past and what he would tell the court to show him how he felt about it while he was in this jail.

desert.jpg
This is a desert road. I chose this picture because when Delia was young she would ride around with her dad in the desert and they would pretend they were going to different places around the world. Everytime she went with her dad he would ask her where she wanted to go and they would always end up on a desert road.
