Everyone experiences jealousy at some point in their life, and it usually ends up hurting them because they want to know the feeling so badly. In the short story “All Summer in a Day” by Ray Bradbury and in the song “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers, they both show how jealousy can hurt you and in some cases, someone else. In “All Summer in a Day” all the kids are waiting to see the sun for the first time on the planet Venus where the sun comes every seven years. All the kids are from Venus, except for Margot, who lived on Earth until she was four, and she remembers what the sun looks like.
It may also lead to jealousy of one another or hatred from someone else, because they think of someone being “better than others.” For example, “…I worry these girls are just doing it because they are being ordered to do so…”, Nancy Irwain (Toddlers in Tiara, 493). Nancy is just stating what she thinks, this is the perfect example of stereotyping someone. Unfortunately, she is stereotyping little girls that play a role in pageants. Maybe the children actually enjoy doing the pageants and the parents do it because of that. That is the perfect way to explain how stereotyping works.

Then Lindsay tells an authority figure knowing that it would help Ava. The text quotes:”...I described the teasing at practice, the lack of acknowledgment, Mr. McCoy laughing at me…’Would Mr. McCoy and Jacob Stone please come to my office immediately?” Lindsey helped her friend and solved the problem by getting Mr. McCoy punished. Looking at the situation, the main character would need a lot of courage to tell a friend, let alone an authority figure. The text quotes:”Each afternoon’s track practice became more and more unbearable...Mr. McCoy only celebrated the boy’s accomplishments... My teammates were ready to attack as soon as I made the simplest mistake…” This proves that Ava had a lot of courage because everyone on her track team was against her.
