When Evyn first saw Eleni, with her red lipstick, black pants, and high heels, she thought Eleni looked nothing like a college professor and a mother. Evyn made the assumption that she went partying every night. That is an example of her being judgemental. After her father, Birdie, reminded Evyn that her new combination lock was 5, 10, 15; she forgot, making her forgetful. An example of Evyn being unintelligent was when her so-called friends, Andrea’s group, calls her Evelyn and doesn’t talk to her unless it’s to ask about updates with Ajax, she doesn’t realize that they’re just using her.

The Late Great Me was a book about a teenage girl named Geri that was an average looking girl that did not really excel in anything. She had a brother that got all the attention at home and at school she was one of the “freaks” and only had two friends. One day Geri met a boy named Dave who later got her into drinking alcohol with him. She really enjoyed it and thought it made her feel very good as it would be an escape for her from her sad reality. At home her mother would always be very distant and would constantly talk about her past as a teenager and how popularity is very important which would get even worse later in the book to the point where she totally isolates herself from people and gets sent to an institution.

Gabrielle “the sister of the victim” says that she and the victim were very close.
In some ways, her brutal acceptance of the world-as-it-has-become is much braver than the father's I'm-sure-everything-will-be-fine-when-we-get-to-the-coast brand of denial. Her willingness to murder her own child to protect him from one of the cruelest worlds in recent literature stands in direct opposition to the father, who, when finally faced with the decision, says, " I cant hold my son dead in my arms. I thought I could but I cant" (279). The mother briefly touches on this difference when she says, "They say that women dream of danger to those in their care and men of danger to themselves. But I dont dream at all.

When she keeps ditching her real friends Janice and Damian and then denies doing it. When Cady was at Regina’s house and writing stuff in the burn book and talking about people behind their backs and says “ I know it may seem like I’ve become a bitch, but that’s only because I was acting like a bitch” She was in denial of doing anything wrong and she was just acting.

While growing up, I felt confused, lonely and hated by my mother. I was confused in my younger years, living with my mother. At times, she was happy, and then her mood changed so drastically, she became sad or angry. She never took me to see any of my family members, and when I asked why, she said,” They don’t love us “.
