(p.18). Here we see that she refrains from discussing her own thoughts and emotions from her children. This line indicates her struggle, and further in the story, hopes she would open up her mind to her mother to reveal her current feelings and emotions. When she arrives at her mother's, she is appalled during the few hours of her lunch visit with her. Her mom lives in a very closed in and elegant home where she was also self-contained.
Her friends eventually gave up on her and stopped caring about being her friend. She stopped shopping with her mom on Wednesday nights, and spent much more time in her room listening to loud and depressing music. Little did everyone know what she was thinking about in her room... Lindsey found out that her parents were going away to New York for a business trip for a week, and she would be home alone. Her parents asked their neighbour Charlie to keep an eye on her because she was going through a peculiar phase, they asked him to check in on her at dinner and around 10:30 PM to make sure that the doors were locked before she went to bed. When her parents went away to New York, Charlie came over and she acted perfectly normal and Charlie told her that he wasn't going to be checking in at 10:30 because he was going to be out, and if she needed anything Lindsey could call his cell phone.
Since her mother spends her greater part of her time on Stan instead of using some of her off-duty hours on Annabelle, Annabelle lacks her mother’s attention. She just wants acceptance for actions. At home she feels overlooked and in the school she fades in the crowd. She is just an ordinary girl nobody really notices. Annabelle is having a hard time accepting the fact that her father and mother aren’t together anymore and her father has been replaced with Stan.
She strongly dislikes her sister’s eagerness to fit in at school and tells Bianca, “You don’t always have to be what other people want you to be”, which shows us that she thinks Bianca should be herself and not follow in the path that her fellow school mates take. These two quotes show us how Kat feels about individuality and how she thinks it affects others. We often see Kat getting kicked out of the classroom for expressing her opinions which shows that she doesn't fit in. One of the first scenes in the movie shows Kat in her worn down car.The punk rock music coming from Kat's car is very different compared to the teenage girls in the car to her left. The camera shows the first group of teenage girls listening to music that you would hear on the radio, and then shows Kat, alone in her car, looking bored with her punk rock music blaring from the speakers of her car.
Although all these characters are in different stages in life they all lack the one thing that pushes them from society to outsiders. A friend/friends who will be the ear to hear their issues and someone who will help guide when need; the feeling of one whom truly understands. We are introduced to our youngest main character Mick Kelly, a young teenage girl who is an outsider in her generation. She realizes that there are lots of cliques among her classmates and that she does not belong to any one in particular; she decides to throw a party to get to know some of the kids better. As she does she realizes she is nothing like them as demonstrated in the film she yells to all of her guest to leave because they were acting childish.
My brother and I stayed at my Grandpa’s house most of the time she was up there mostly only going home to sleep and get ready for school the next day, it was weird and confusing but my grandpa was good at getting our minds off of things and keeping our spirits up when he needed to. While my grandmother was in the hospital, my brother and I didn’t get to go see her, we were either too young to go in or my parents didn’t think we should see her that way, I can’t remember. When she finally came home, they said the disease was gone but she was still very sick. She looked completely different and she was very weak. They had started her on chemotherapy, and from what I understand
Maggie’s mother was also older and better suited to be a mother because she was older and more experienced however, Maggie’s father also left the family. Maggie turned out to be shy and refrained from social life since she did not leave the house after being burned. “She stoops down quickly and lines up picture after picture of me sitting in front of the house with Maggie cowering behind me” (Walker 746). Too much attention leads to Maggie clinging to her mother and not enough attention drives Emily to not seek out a close relationship with her mother. Both mothers are concerned with the status of their daughters.
Maggie selflessly insists that her sister can have the quilts (128). Maggie is also not a very strong character; instead she stays in the background most every situation that she can. For example, Dee and her friend rapidly approached the house in their car. “Maggie attempts to make a dash for the house…” but her mother quickly takes hold of her, making sure that she does not escape. Maggie was very uneasy around her sister; her mother tells her anxiousness in regard to Dee’s visitation: “Maggie will be nervous until after her sister goes: she will stand hopelessly in corners, homely and ashamed of the burn scars down her arms and legs, eyeing her sister with a mixture of envy and awe” (119).
I could only imagine how worried they were when they thought I was doing the same thing as my older siblings. They called me numerous times and I never answered. My friends would text or call me and tell me that my parents showed up at their house looking for me and I just said, “Don’t tell them where I’m at.” I shouldn’t have been selfish; I should’ve just stayed home. My brother wanted the best for me even though we weren’t close. Sam and Shelbi were best friends but they weren’t the best for each
