427 Words2 Pages
In the book Shattering Glass by Gail Giles Rob’s social class influences what others think of him. Everyone thinks of him as the best of the best and everyone does what he does. For example, when Rob walks into school on the first day, the author writes “When he walked into a room, there was a jolt and all eyes turned his way”(2). Bases on the fact that the author used the word “jolt”, it is reasonable to assume that because of his popularity everyone looks at him whenever he walks into any room. Another piece of evidence that shows his popularity is when the students were in the cafeteria, Giles writes “His blue eyes and big smile hypnotized one and all”(3). From this we can see how social classes impact people's views on others. Simon Glass
