Because of his loneliness, he asked Zeena to marry him without thinking it through. He had no feelings for her and desperately hoped it would make him feel better. While being married to Zeena, his unhappiness peaked and caused him to fall in love with another girl who was the Fromes’ maid, Mattie Silver.

When back home everyone was showing to they neighbors of wearing nice and expensive clothes they have just for then minutes while they going to the grocery store behind the corner. Like models on runway. Simple example buying top brand cars on last family money, or in credit and not having enough money to put gas in the car so it will be standing for 3-5 months until police with bank are repossessing the car for not making payments. I was showing only examples of people values in they life and how much they care for what people around them will think or say. Transformed from Naïve to grow up man, changed perception of life.

Norman had felt as if he had no one to talk to or relate to because no one around him had experienced war like he had. He tried to keep jobs when he was home from war, but not one of them had lasted more than 3 weeks. Since he feels he is unable to speak to anyone about war, he writes a letter to O’Brien, telling his entire war story. He soon feels as if he cannot do anything without thinking about war and hangs himself in the locker room of his town’s YMCA. These are all examples of how Norman Bowker had changed throughout the story.
On the outside, David’s family is just like any other ordinary family. His mother, Betty, a stay at home mom and his father a radiologist. As the memoir unfolds in front of the reader, it is clear that David is deprived of a basic emotional support system from his parents. This household is very passive aggressive and silent that is mainly due to David’s parents and the lack of communication between family members. At the age of seven, a lump is discovered on David’s neck, and instead of taking care of it, David’s parents chose to wait and go on a shopping spree (Small 137-143).
In S.E Hinton's "The Outsiders", Ponyboy is a fourteen-year-old that has a lot to say about himself and the environment around him. When he got introduced in the story, the first thing we knew was that he was living with his brothers Soda and Darry, and his parents had died in a car accident. In his perspective, he knows what's he doing, but he forgets stuff pretty quickly. For example, he admitted that he doesn't use his mind: "one of our gang would have come to get me in his car if I had asked him, but sometimes I just don't use my head"(3, 4). Whenever he has to make a choice, he's imprecise about it and does things that don't appeal to him.

By this time, I was working at Sears at Northridge Mall in the clothing department, where Xavier would occasionally come over to see me. On one of my days off of work, Xavier came over to the house in the evening, where he encountered the wrath of father. My dad yelled, “Get out of here you punk!” and leaped after him and kicked him down the street and told him to never come around the house again. I was peeking out my bedroom window, when my father stomped into my room, outraged he slammed the door behind him and took off his belt and began to hit me repeatedly. I cried the entire night; I was embarrassed to go to school the next day and didn’t know what I was going to tell Xavier.
