Margot is the only one in her class that has remembered the sun before. The kids mock her and say that she is lying. The kids say this because they are jealous of Margot.

Jealousy leads people to do things that they otherwise may not have done. This apparent in the text "All Summer in a Day" by Ray Bradbury, a young girl, by the name of Margot, has an experience all of the other children envy. As the only one who remembers the sun during a seven-year rain, she has to deal with the trauma of being away from the sun that means so much to her. Consequently, the children hate her for this and treat her with complete disrespect and zero regard to her emotions. Bradbury displays jealousy's negative impact on someone's behavior and exposes human nature's tendency to want what others have with his use of pivotal moments.

Connie’s family just wants her to be like her sister so much so that Connie was always compared to June; “June did this, June did that” (324). When Connie’s family leaves, she “sat with her eyes closed in the sun, dreaming and dazed with the warmth about her as if this were a kind of love, the caresses of love” in this way she feels as her family leaves her she dreams of what it would feel like to be loved (326).
