“Allison Gross” also has a happy ending, just as fairy tales usually do.

She says: “Maybe she had listened through the walls and heard nothing, the stagnant silence of our unhappy house” (114). Lena is associating the loudness of her neighbor’s home with the love she expects from her own mother, and the silence of her house so strongly opposes that which she expects.

Lena desperately wants her mother to understand the expectations associated with motherhood in America, and doesn’t understand why her relationship with her mother is so much more broken than her peers’ relationships. Without these expectations from both Lena and Ying-Ying about how it is acceptable to mother, their relationship would have endured significantly less

In the Cinderella film and the Little Golden Book rendition, Cinderella is tormented by the joint efforts of her stepmother and her stepsisters. They all had “fair faces, but evil and dark hearts” (Grimm 3). While there is a de facto leader of this trio—the stepmother—the group still performs acts in conjunction with each other.
