"It's like Charlie told the cop. For this old man, this is home."(331) This is the last lne in the book. It is important to me because i feel like it was a great way to end the book. It refers Charlie and the cop. At the end, Jacob goes to a circus show when hes old and this guy charlie finds him and Jacob tells him about experience with his circus and all his history. Charlie likes Jacob and brings him to his RV. A cop comes looking for Jacob because the nursing home called cuz he was missing. Charlie made up an excuse telling the cop that Jacob was his dad and that he lived with him because Jacob was going to run away with Charlie in the circus. So whn he said that this is home it made me happy because Jacob must really love the circus and im happy that he ended up where he wanted to be and probably died a happy man.
