One example of this is when “The children huddled up to her and breathed like little calves waiting at the bars in the twilight.” This simile shows that Granny’s children truly looked up to her and idolized her, but Granny never truly felt the same way about them. Her emotions over Hapsy and her love for her over the other childern shows that Granny doesn’t care that her children were all huddled around her and were looking up to her. Another example of Granny’s complex emotions is “she saw it marching across the creek swallowing the trees and moving up the hill like an army of ghosts.

Throughout Romeo and Juliet, the Nurse and Friar Laurence play very comparable roles, as being mentors for the two “star-crossed” lovers, and always being their plan for advise. These two young lovers are put through a relationship that they both end up destined to take their lives. From raising these children since they were young, they were always beneficial to the characters at that moment, but in the end, they did not certainly help at all.

Although, the advice they give throughout the play leaves a negative effect on them, and has the two both ending their lives, because of each other.

Clearly, many parents have problems with the larger themes and messages in Crank, and YA literature in general, because of its mature and explicit content. Adults want to protect their child(ren) from the dangers of the outside world for as long as possible and novels like Crank threaten to subvert that desire, and expose adolescents to the dark, unpleasant, and disturbing side of life beyond soccer practice, dance class, and student council meetings. Because the entire novel, beginning with the first page and ending with the last, centers on Kristina’s drug use, and the havoc that unleashes after her addiction
The behavior of each set of parents deeply influences the development of each girl as a person, but also proves that despite the type of parent featured within YA literature, these characters are always designed to give the protagonist increased independence throughout the novel, and embark on their own journeys without parental interference.
