A foster child in Nazi Germany who's hiding a Jew would not be expected to be selfish but don't judge a book by its cover (see what I did there). As the story plays out, Liesel gets more curious and disregards the well-being of others. Liesel lies to Rudy saying that's all she could find but obviously that wasn't the case. It is evident now that Liesel steals, and along with books she also like to steal food, but only for herself.
On the other hand, Katniss is suspicious of his behavior, and believes he is just pretending to be nice, but she realizes that he is just being himself. She states in the book, “Peeta Mellark, on the other hand, has obviously been crying and interestingly enough does not seem to be trying to cover it up. I immediately wonder if this will be his strategy in the Games. To appear weak and frightened, to reassure the other tributes that he is no competition at all, and then come out fighting.” (Collins, 2008, p.49)
The theme of short story “Thank You M’am”, written by Langston Hughes, exemplifies how we should trust others for help when we need it. One piece of evidence to support this theme is when Mrs. Jones left the door open after she brought Roger inside “She switched on the light and left the door open.” This evidence shows us that if Roger doesn’t trust her then he can leave, but when he does trust Mrs. Jones he knows that he will be able to wash his face and make himself look presentable. Another piece of evidence shown in the story is presented when Roger doesn’t sit next to her pocketbook, “But the boy took care to sit on the far side of the room, away from her purse …”. This evidence shows us that Roger very much wants to be trusted by Mrs.

In the poem “The Changeling” by Judith Ortiz Cofer, I read it as she’s trying to get her father’s attention, she is acting to be someone else because she changes into her brother’s clothes, as a costume, until it’s dinner time and her mother asks her to take those clothes off, it’s then where everything is back to reality. In the poem “The Birthplace” by Cofer, she talks about her hometown and how it lacks features on the hills which will stop her from going places, she doesn’t go to churches that are full of the people who regret their wrongs, the roads just lead to other roads, and how towns are the same to other towns. In the poem “On the Island I Have Seen” by Cofer she talks about men who work hard in the sun while old men play dominoes in the shade, women in black dresses asking
At the opening of the play, we find that she eats forbidden sweets behind her husbands back. This is not a huge offense, but it is an action that gives us insight into her deceptive nature. We later discover that she borrowed money, forged a signature, and lied to her husband about it. She justifies her actions with the rational that her deceptive actions stem out of an act of love, thus making them right. She doesn 't see anything wrong with her perception and can often be found covering her deceit with phrases like, “You mustn 't say anything about it to anyone.

To be marginalized is to be treated as insignificant, which can serve to be a double edged sword that can serve the oppressor or the oppressed. Her marginalization allowed her to beg her grandmother “(Jacobs 116) not to allow her children to be impertinent to the irascible old man”. Her marganizalition aided her because her unimportance drastically reduced the rate at which people searched for her. This ability to go undetected not only protected her but when used resourcefully allowed her to protect her children from potential danger. Jacobs’ conviction and intuition allowed her to transform her grim predicament in order to find the silver lining.
Quitting his job was a spontaneous decision he made to protect his ego. Lengel calls out “you don 't want to do this” but Sammy keeps walking (Updike 5). Sammy’s stubbornness to admit he’s wrong can be interpreted by the quotation: “It 's true, I don ' t. But it seems to me that once you begin a gesture it 's fatal not to go through with it” (Updike 5).
In the short story, “Thank You, M’am” by Langston Hughes, Roger was a poor, lonely boy who tried to snatch a woman’s purse, but the woman’s actions cause Roger to become thankful.

“ I have done things too, which I will not tell you,” Mrs.Luella Bates Washington Jones said to Roger the boy that tried to steal her purse.
