Sarah was once involved to places like those by her father so the significant is that She already had a positive altitude towards any environment as she was once exposed to that

her sense of surprise is a sign of dislike for her father's environment. to her, it seems like a forest because she only sees trees. now, if she is to live with her grandfather Tom, what will become of her and this environment she has a sense of dislike for?

I think she'll come to appreciate the nature and beauty of her ancestry. It will bring her closer to her roots.

In the beginning, she dislikes all that she saw, but across the story, she became a new person and sees everything in a different way.

There may have been initial hiccups in their familial ties but I reckon that Sarah will ultimately realise how she is better off with her grandfather than anywhere else.

The initial strains between Sarah and Tom wasn't because of Tom's irresponsibility or disdain of looking after his grandchild. Enjoying fantastical tales but not believing that such are true is not just a pragmatic grandfather's reaction and could be a more expected response than what Sarah believed it to be. This is a sign of Tom's sense of responsibility. It could be noted that he was so adamant at the start that bringing Sarah over is not a good idea but still felt compelled not to leave Sarah behind if there is no better option. This is an indication that he cared for his grandkid. Both instances show that Sarah was better off with Tom.

Sarah is still young and on her way to learning more about life. She' can develop her views for the better.

Sarah may be in her teens still but her past has honed her into a headstrong young woman in her own right, quick to learn and adapt to what she encounters and experiences.
