The moment she saw Smitty, That’s when she right away was interested in him. She met a friend named Hally which told her all about Smitty. As Hally and Ginny were walking to their second period, Hally said “ he never smiles, he never frowns, and he never cries.” I think this quote means that Smitty is maybe scared to show his emotions because people might be asking him what had happened over the past 15 years on why he had been silent and not speaking. Hally said that there is something wrong going on with him.

Almost forgot the name of my high school is Adrian Wilcox High, home of the thunder if I remember correctly or lightning one of the two but I digress.

We were even shown the footage of her eating lunch alone in a bathroom stall on her first day of school because she had no one to sit with during lunch. This condition demonstrates that the thought of being a free thinker in our society, they must be entirely distant from it. Social pressure is a powerful force, and it can be seen when an individual meets other human beings. Therefore, the consequences of not being removed by these social pressures, we can see within the character of Cady at the beginning of the film, when she is completely separated from the other students at the school. This is not what an individual wants their lifestyle to be like, they want the sense of belonging and acceptance by other human
