As Oranges Are not the Only Fruit ends with mother-daughter reconciliation, Sharp Objects starts with the daughter’s homecoming. Camille, the narrator of the whole story, is a young and independent reporter who is sent back to her hometown, Wind Gap, to investigate the murder of a little girl and a disappeared child.

The first part of this section examines Adora’s representation as a phallic mother, as opposed to the traditional representation of women’s passivity and to the weak male characters represented in the novel. The second part analyses the reasons for the woman’s differently damaging attitudes towards her daughters.

The experience of child abuse and neglect infringe upon that right should not be accepted in any civilised societies. The effect of abuse endangers the life of a child in different ways.

When speaking, Audrey Hepburn said, “I am here to day to speak for children who cannot speak for themselves. Every child has the right to health, to tenderness, to life,” (Cardillo 26).
