****This passage uses a metaphor because it talks about how Santiagos mom is trying to put the "broken mirror of memory" back together. This means that she is trying to figure out what happened when her son died. This is a metaphor because it is comparing the different events of his murder to all the different broken pieces to a mirror, meaning that his murder is not completely resolved and there are still pieces that need to be put together. They have the big parts to his murder, but they still haven't put are the events together. The reader can see that the narrator is a true friend because he is trying to see what truly happened to his friend. Furthermore, it shows that Santiago's mom is distraught to what happened to her son and she wants to figure out the truth and what actually happened.
