In a panic, any sensible person with good morals would help their crippled sister or their other sick baby sister. Rachel didn’t do either of these things. In the moment, Rachel thought “I only had time to save one precious thing.
I remember you wearing it once.” Rachel just goes along with the teacher says without standing up or herself. Now Rachel feels even worse than before because Mrs.Price puts the sweater on her desk for all the students to see. This illustrates how her day got worse when she was crestfallen and prevents her from kstand ping up for herself and as a outcome she suffers from embarrassment, and negative consequences. As Rachel bashfulness gives rise to an embarrassing and mortification situation, enventate at the end of the story. In her internal dialogue she enounces, “Today I'm eleven.
Rachel was the daughter of Reverend Brown, who brainwashed the people of the town to radically believe that God must come before anything else. In simpler terms, anyone who dared to speak against that concept, would be hated by the people of Hillsboro. Because of this, Rachel felt pressured to follow her father’s rules. If she failed to do so, she would be an embarrassment to him. Rachel’s love for Cates was stronger than the fear she had of her father.

According to The Guardian, Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train is closely related to Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Sec. 3). Hawkins is very proud of that statement because she thinks that Gone Girl is an amazing book.
Also, in the book The Girl On The Train, the main character Rachel struggles with many parts of her life also and is dealing with troubles in her relationships. Rachel was married to Tom years ago but they are not together anymore.

She takes no part in, and mostly ignores the movement for an independent and just Congo, despite living there. Rachel’s adult life consists of benefiting from other people’s pain and hard work.

Leah was the one who mostly supported and followed her father, she also brings the tomboy side, with hunting aspects and wanting to hangout and do what the males do. Rachel’s perspective throughout was selfish and privileged. Rachels chapters are filled with complaining and comparisons to her old life in Georgia and when she gets older she is still all about the luxurious lifestyle and puts herself in front of others while throwing out racial slurs. Next, Adah, she was Leah’s twin and the disabled one people overlooked, when in actuality, she was so smart she could read and write backwards.

Of course, this distresses Rachel, and she doesn’t know what to do. Therefore she turns to other people for help and advice; she depends on them to tell her what to do. For instance, at one point Rachel, quite distraught, runs to the jail and calls down, “Bert, can you hear me?
I remember you wearing it once’ Because she’s older and the teacher, she’s right and I’m not.” Rachel is scared when Mrs. Price demands that she put the sweater on and does not allow her to explain that it is not her cloths. Rachel, while still silent, attempts to manage by thinking about happy thoughts. She thinks about her birthday dinner that evening.
