One of the most profoundly moving scenes in “House” is Thien’s depiction of two young girls waiting outside their former home on their mother’s birthday, hoping that she will return to them. The two unwanted children sit all day in the late summer heat on a patch of dead grass, between the sidewalk and curb, property that Kathleen tells Lorraine does not belong to anyone.

Miriam walks by Paula’s house and “stood on the sidewalk out front hoping that wherever Paula was, they would never find her and make her go back again” (73).

Even before Karen told them she was a lesbian they made a comment about how it would look wrong for her to be at the booth for parents night and how they do not want her with that crowd.
When that feeling of control is suddenly challenged by something as traumatic as sexual assault, some may feel embarrassed that they can no longer defend themselves because, in a situation like that, there is only so much the victim can do to defend himself or herself mentally and physically. The night Marianne was attacked, she was with her friend. When Marianne’s mother, Corinne found out about what happened to her on prom night, she called Trisha's mother to apologize if her daughter had been involved in what happened.
