In the book Bastard Out of Carolina, Bone survives her stepfather’s, Glen’s, abuse by finding ways to escape from it. For instance, at the beginning of chapter nine, Bone’s mother permits her to work with her in the diner for extra spending money and encourages her to occupy her days in order to avoid Glen when he comes home from work (Allison 119). Although Bone attempts to take her mother’s advice to prevent the abuse by finding ways to circumvent it, the abuse persists because Glen personally seeks out Bone. Yet, Bone discovers a diversion from Glen’s persistent abuse when she finds metal fishing hooks connected to chains at the bottom of the river behind her Aunt Raylene’s house. Bone’s desire to keep these metal hooks and chains for herself is unusual because according to societal standards such items seem to appeal more to males as sharp tools used for sport.
