In his essay “Working at Wendy's”, Joey Franklin conveys that he works at Wendy's because he feels that, even though the job may seem demeaning, it is something he has to do for the benefit of his family.

He talks about when his brother was first born in the beginning of the story and how he was happy that he was getting someone to hang out with. Once he found out that his brother was undeveloped he says a lot of things that I think a healthy person should say, such as planning on smothering his brother with a pillow. I consider that the narrator did not sound like an average child, his personality might have been that way since the birth of his brother, but we do not get to read a lot about his life and feelings before his brother was born. I think the relationship between the narrator and his brother is very complex, and cannot be described easily. It was confusing to tell what he narrators true feelings were throughout the story, but I believed that he loved his brother.
Many believe McCandless was indeed selfish, because McCandless abandoned his family to quench his own selfish thirst. In retrospect McCandless family dynamic was not peaches and cream. McCandless was pushed toward transcendentalism, when the families’ secrets where unveiled.

In retaliation of abuse and deception, McCandless fled to find truth.
Greasy Lake The main character begins his story by portraying just how bad and how much of a rebel he and his friends are. He expresses their bad boy behavior in the beginning with “we wore torn-up leather jackets, slouched around with toothpicks in our mouth, sniffed glue and ether and what somebody claimed was cocaine” (396). Reading the first two paragraphs of this story, one automatically gets the sense that these boys desperately desire a bad boy image. They will do whatever it takes for other to believe it but most importantly, so they themselves believe it. The narrator tells the story in such a way where he id trying very hard to make his image believable to the rest of the world.

The social morals at the time made Huck think he was a bad person for not turning in a runaway slave like he was expected to. Throughout the book, Huck no longer uses societies morals in order to keep Jim safe. Huck creates his own set of morals to keep his “family”
