Here’s a quote I thought of that perfectly fits Peter, “Some people love them, most people hate them, everyone groans when they hear them.” The funeral was held at 3:50 pm for about two hours, too long. Here’s an advice to the people “When entering a funeral home, remember to stay alert and always look
They woke to the sounds of their quarreling neighbors around 3 in the afternoon and it was obvious that they missed their first day of work. Sandra was okay with it being the careless person she was, but Mildra was outraged she swore to never speak to Sandra again. Sandra obviously had no respect for their friendship and disregarded every rule that Mildra had set up before they went out. Sandra realized that she had crossed the line too she never felt so bad in her life. She managed to ruin things for the one person she cared about more than anything.
First, he felt abandoned by Alice, the girl at the orphanage. A couple years later, he felt threatened by the dietician. After the toothpaste incident, “It never occurred to her that he believed that he was the one who had been taken in sin and was being tortured with punishment deferred and that he was putting himself in her way in order to get it over with, get his whipping and strike the balance and write it off” (123). He had a hatred for Mrs. McEachern because she tried to help him and he did not want help from anyone. She fixed him supper one night and he completely refused it, “While she watched him he rose from the bed and took the tray and carried it to the corner and turned it upside down, dumping the dishes and food and all onto the floor” (154-155).
Her parents never realized that after every meal Rachel would secretly go to the bathroom upstairs and throw up everything she had eaten. Her father would beat her up and treat her like trash and her mother would just stand there and not say a word because she was weak and always did as Rachel’s dad said. In her kindergarten class, Rachel treated all the other little girls with rudeness, anger, and jealousy towards anyone who was better than her. She often spent her days in the principal’s office because of her strong character and misbehaviors. Rachel grew up, went through her dating stage, and then finally met a wonderful man that she could not picture herself without; a caring, positive, supportive husband that goes by the name of Tim.
Her craving for it grew from day to day, and she began to waste away because she knew she could never get any” (154).

In modern times we all root for the “bad boy”.
Unlike all the men she had tried to not let down, she felt guilty about killing an innocent creature. In conclusion, Kaplan uses the short story "Doe Season" to convey the "coming of age" story for a young girl. The affect of peer pressure is increasing every year because more and more people are like Andy. When young, children are influenced by everyone around them, often leading to trouble. The influence of the men around Andy affected her decision to shoot and kill the doe.
This shows she is obsessive because she has never spoken to him to know so many personal facts about him. Lastly, the narrator proves that she is obsessed with the boy because the narrator started to do things she disliked so she could see her love. Since she knew that her ‘young Marlon Brando look a like’ worked at the supermarket near her apartment on weekends she would desperately go to the supermarket just to see her love: “I pounced on every opportunity from Friday to late Sunday afternoon to go after eggs, cigarettes, milk (I tried to drink as much as possible although I hated the stuff)…”. In the quote the girl clearly proves to the reader that she would do nearly anything for her love, even if it is something she dislikes. If she was really in love with the boy, she would wait for things to run out naturally rather then making sure the products run out quickly and running out your own families’ money just to meet her own personal needs, which is to see the face of her love.

She hated their meals with passion to the point where she had to starve herself. “The first week of my being among them I hardly ate any thing; the second week I found my stomach grow very faint for want of something; and yet it was very hard to get down their filthy trash” (Rowlandson).

He had to learn how to play his mother's games in order to survive because she no longer considered him a son, but a slave; no longer a boy, but an "it." A Child Called “It” describes one of the worst documented cases of child abuse in California history. Dave lived I a world of starvation, cruelty, and torture from the age of four until he was rescued by school officials at the age of twelve. In the following scene, Dave’s mother is yelling at him and tried to force him to lie on flames so she could watch
