While I'm not going to answer this question for you, I would be glad to help you by giving you some things to think about as you work on this problem.

First of all, a question like this has no right or wrong answers.  It's all about making sure that you can defend your song choices with evidence from the text.

Think about Isabel.  What are her physical traits? What is her personality like?  Which words, images and interactions would define her character?  Make a list of everything you know about her.  Include her relationships with other characters as well as important events that shape her experience.

From there,  you may begin to see some themes and ideas that match songs that you already know.  If you are still having trouble identifying songs,  I would suggest that you use the internet as well as music websites. You can use some of the words and phrases from your list about the character as your key words.

This can be a fun question to explore.  Good luck!
