The ship in a bottle is a symbol in the book of what Susie liked to do with her dad. It also shows how close of her and her father were. They would make boats in bottles all the time. When Susie he smashed one because of how upset and angry he was was.

This is the first book that I have actually read through fully and quikly. I really liked this book because it makes it kind of a mystery and I love books like. I also saw the movie and loved it so I thought i would like the book too.
