Here he is trying to evoke sadness for the death of this little girl and to create fear of the possible dangers of being in beauty pageants. He also created emotion when uses narratives to describe the typical life of a pageant girl, for example when Hollandsworth using a tone of ridicule to describe Eden as “just another country girl, cute but not particularly beautiful” (495-496).
