Just like you and me, Lindy has good and bad moments. At the beginning of the book, one of Lindy’s high points was when Kyle gave Lindy a rose. To Kyle, the rose didn’t really mean much, but it meant a lot to Lindy. For instance, the rose gave Lindy lots of hope that maybe someday she would find someone who loves her. Kyle though just thought it was a flower that he gave away because it was too cheap for his date, Sloane.
Tina and Jimmy Jr.’s roles are almost reverse when it comes to their relationship, or the start of it; Tina is the one going after Jimmy Jr., while he is more interested in dancing and hanging out with his friends. In her book “Dilemmas of Desire: Teenage Girls Talk About Sexuality” Deborah L. Tolman discusses her findings regarding teenage girls and sexuality and Tina seems to deviate from this; she writes that teenage girls do not talk about their own desires nor do they recognise the dominant sexual patterns of behaviour from their peers, teenage boys (2002, p. 26). Tina comes across as a confident teen, but with puberty there’s

“In film I always get the call for the girlfriend roll, and I’m like well what does the girlfriend do? She’s very supportive, she is a very supportive girlfriend”, Says Juliana Margulies in the film Searching for Debra Winger. The film industry is making it a habit to give women only the roles of the girlfriend or roles of women empowered by a man. The whole purpose of the girlfriend role, which many women in Hollywood compete for, is to support the male lead character. Most of the women chosen for these parts are young, have had work done to their body, and are judged on how sexually attractive they are.
Yanagi, one of the most patient male characters I have ever seen.When Yanagi was young, he was known to be the "Prince" of his school. He thought of himself as the King of his world. He excels at almot everything and is the target of the female population 's admiration, much to the disdain of some boys. When Kujou(the lead female character) transferred to his school, Yanagi considered her his rival because she excels and competes with him in almost everything he does. He dismissed his tutors and wanted to defeat Kujou with his own strength.
Not all friendships are the same; “ A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.” Concerning the friendship in this story, one friendship was based on caring, because George cared for Lennie, another was companionship, Curley’s wife was a very flirtatious person, especially to the men around her and Lennie. Candy was wanting to gain stability. George knew that Lennie had problems from the first day they met each other. Although he had the mindset of a child, George still managed to be a good, caring friend. He was more like Lennie’s parent.
I think their friendship gives a realistic picture of friendships because they were always true to one another and wanted the best for each other. The four boys always supported each other through hard times. For example, Chris was very discouraged because the people of the town predicted that he would be a lowlife in the future just like his father. However, Gordie did not let that put down Chris, instead he encouraged Chris to also take college-level course to become something high and prove the public wrong. Female friendships are very similar to this.
He shows that he was extremely pleased with his daughter, Ezinma, several times throughout the novel. He thinks a lot of the young lady… much more than he does his sons, which he labels as disappointments. Sometimes a rare, affectionate side of him even shines through when he is addressing Ezinma. Okonkwo is proud of his daughter and who she is becoming, for he even says, “If Ezinma had been a boy I would have been happier. She has the right spirit”(50).
She is describe as not too pretty as a woman but still have the charming side of her that make people interested in her. Even though she already had a boyfriend, she is also been stereotyped to be a normal woman that have crush on James who is the actor that she need to interview. She was also thinking of having his babies. It is true that woman imagination is wild and broad but they are just imagining of having something not like
“SO I AINT NO GOOD GIRL” In this story “SO I AINT NO GOOD GIRL”, written by Sharon Flake, I felt that the author really made the characters realistic and normal. Simply because the way the characters show themselves to the readers .also the way the readers display themselves, it makes everything seem so real. Because she is dating Raheem and is very protective of him and that is very real in the actual world today. But with Raheem he shows a personality that u can really learn to dislike or hate. And that is another reason why Raheem shows real human boy or teenager characteristics.
I relate most to Cath. I feel like I can relate to Cath the most because she is shy at first, but she learns to come out to people in a positive way. I feel I am very shy at first, but when I get to know people I’m very lively and happy. I can also relate because Cath and I are not the most outgoing people - we both don’t do sports and we both would rather stay home than go out. Lastly, we both have a twin sister!
