The girl in the story has friends that are buying their dresses online. One of the girl’s friends got her “dress given to me” (130).

As a 13-year-old girl, she wanted to have space while getting ready for the dance; she was so vulnerable to see all the hard work that her mother had put in. Her mother wanted to see her daughter put on the dress because she worked on it “All through the month” (129).

Although she was unhappy no one in her family knew she wanted to leave until she was already gone. In a letter she was writing to her family Marilyn said, “I have kept all these feelings inside me for a long time”. This inward questioning about whether she should stay at home and become the perfect housewife, or if she should chase her dream of becoming a doctor is what defines Marilyn as a character. She has all of these aspirations however, due to the social norms around her she is forced to choose between two separate lives. This decision and specifically the letter relates back to the title where it hints at secrets kept by characters in the novel.
Curley’s Wife in the book is a tart. This is true as Candy describes her as, “ She got the eye.” (Steinbeck, 28) This reflects the time period Curley’s Wife lives in, a period of women treated as property and trophies, often ignored till someone brings the trophy or property up. The same with Curley’s Wife as she is not very important to Curley, Curley only keeps his hands soft for her, this shows how little Curley’s wife means to him. To extend this point, Curley 's’ wife is simply known as Curley’s Wife, this shows how little she means to him that hae does not even introduce her properly. Curley’s wife is often lonely as she says in the book, “ I get awfully lonely.”(Steinbeck, 86) This shows that she was isolated on the ranch, and no one wanted
On page 23 the author writes “She no longer cared about the boarding school in Seattle, or her friends back in Anchorage.

When Bechdel first suggests writing about her mother, she does not respond with the kindness or sincerity that Françoise did. Bechdel does not receive the same encouragement or cooperation. In some ways, it seems as if Bechdel’s mother does not want anything to do with the book at all. When the two discuss it, the conversation lasts for no more than a few minutes before Bechdel’s mother leaves. Comparing this to the nightlong discussions that Spiegelman had with her mother, a reader can sense a sort of disdain from Bechdel’s mother towards her
I recall never seeing my brother being obligated to helping out with dinner or participating on laundry day. Another aspect my mother taught me was how to behave, although she would scold all of my siblings the same if we didn 't behave some things she made sure to teach me.
