One event in which Louie shows his defiance is in childhood, where he is shown as being rebellious, incorrigible, and troublesome. In the book, it says, “to get even with a railcar conductor who wouldn’t stop for him, Louie greased the rails...when a teacher made him stand in a corner for spitballing, he deflated her car with toothpicks.” (pg. 7) This shows defiance because Louie never followed the rules and was always seeking revenge, proving that he is defiant.

Work and school can be stressful, I tend to draw what the instructor is talking plus it’s the same way as taking notes but in drawing.

It can get tiring and I intend to fall asleep when instruct is talking, to stay awake I must find a distraction so whenever I must take notes I draw what the instructor is talking about and that helps me out a lot. And one of my instructor also said when taking a test and you don’t know the answer, you can draw a picture it shows that your knowledge that there was question

In the case of the small boy in Gary Soto’s The Jacket, he feels let down by his mother, friends, teachers, and many other peers. Due to the embarrassment he receives from a new guacamole-green jacket with yellow lining, this boy turns depressed. Teachers, friends, and other kids at school all revile against him just due to his appearance and how he dresses, which in this case he cannot control.

After a long hot day with my dad at his mechanic shop, licking cream I was dropped off by my cousin 's house overnight because my mom had to work. Waking up to the horrible smell of burnt candlesticks, I knew something wasn’t right. Then I remember the fire produce they taught us in school. While yelling to my friend Denesha “fire, there is a fire” I quickly jumped off into the floor,
The school year progresses and Kenny keeps us up to speed on the highlights, which mostly involve Byron getting into trouble. He beats up Larry Dunn, he sets things on fire, he kills a bird with a cookie (no, we 're not kidding) and then gets really upset about it.

Then Byron gets his hair chemically straightened without permission (in the Watson family this is a big no no, so dad shaves Byron 's head ball, and that is the last straw.
After a major uproar the students cause, the military questionably moves out, and the teenagers are left without any food for an extremely long while. After David may or may not "escape" from the school, and from his very-near death from the disease as his immunity diminished, we fast-forward a month or two, and are given a story primarily centered around Will and Lucy. It 's been forever since there was a supply drop in the Quad, and the population inside is majorly thinned. The established facility that the military had once controlled over to prevent students with the infection from leaving, but letting those free of it go through, was left suddenly abandoned, but the doors still being locked made it impossible to know from the outside. Suddenly,
