Any obstacle or disadvantage may be turned into something good if you really want to change what the situation is. In the book “The Glass Castle” Jeannette Walls went through a plethora of obstacles and disadvantages in her life that caused dilemmas for her, yet they never stopped her. In the book “ The Outsider” just by the fact of being born a greaser was already a disadvantage and there was still more obstacles to come, but that didn’t stop Ponyboy from trying to change his situation for better.

This is the other quote that proves Abby changed. “We sold her for a nice piece of change within a month, and I wish I knew where she was.” This quote explains that Abby misses the horse because she and her dad sold her for a good price.
