Rationale I have chosen to write a letter from Jordan Baker from The Great Gatsby to a friend of hers. In the letter she is telling about Daisy and Gatsby’s relationship and especially how her friend Daisy changed as a result.

She never told me about it, but everyone knew Tom had cheated on her from the beginning. I cannot understand why she didn’t just leave him, but that’s probably just who Daisy is.
