This is significant because it shows that Carley thinks Mrs. Murphy is getting close to her so she keeps pushing her away.

Their relationship is pretty much non-existant other than the fact that they are foster-siblings.
The stolen toucan is the narrator’s desperate plea to be seen and heard, his craving for attention. For him, it’s a normality to self-sabotage – automatic and natural. Without chaos, he has no means to act and react. Mason Joseph Andrews, the baby, is also significant, “but already I am more to him than is own father because I taught him what I know about the cold. It sinks in, there to stay, doesn’t it?”
Unfortunately Holden had a brother named Allie who had died from leukemia. I believe Holden is a troubled teen because of his brothers death, maybe if things were different, his problems with his interactions with others wouldn't bother him as much as it does. Throughout the story I could notice the problems Holden has with not only the interactions with people but the environment because he has problems with people that are fake and in the story Holden always calls them, “Phonies”.

It is almost like he is numb inside.

Still, his immense love for her led him to suppress the memories of these events, even though subconsciously it was impacting his life and who he had become. Charlie concludes that he no longer needs to write his letters as a release for his emotions.
They are no longer twins and they don't share that special bond, but what this crap even supposed to mean? Hasn't she wished countless times to alienate him from her? Didn't she argue once Max might be adopted, her parents' charity cause? Or was he the one to say so of her?

The American Dream is the biggest comparison in the two novels and a secondary addition to that could be how unrealistic they are. Gatsby is completely impractical about his dream, he convinces himself that Daisy will leave her husband, child and her life to be with him. Afterwards Gatsby started realizing what was going on and started to panic and worry when it was not going his way, however he was always filled with fear of failure he never once gave up hope on Daisy even through very tough situations such as Myrtle’s death. Lennie was similar in the way that he would get himself into trouble on the contrary he still expected his dream to come true but he never realized that it would never be possible if he kept getting himself into trouble.

Nick disapproves of his drastic actions to win back Daisy. An example of this is the quote, “He wanted nothing more than that she should go to Tom and say: ‘ I never loved you.’” This is obviously a drastic measure to take for Daisy and is unreasonable. However throughout the whole novel Nick stays with Gatsby and even facilitates him have Daisy cheat on Tom, and he remains Gatsby’s only true friend throughout
