Mccandless sense of self confidence while trying to find his identity helped him to progress in life, but was also his greatest downfall; Into the Wild demonstrates self confidence as not an unacceptable trait to have, but the significance of the negative or positive effects it can possess. Confidence played a big role in Mccandless life, so much that he created relationships with his family and other people that caused him to go on his adventures.

On the other hand, Starving is another symbol that the writer uses to represent how the family feels about Papi. Papi is starving his family of affection and love, while they all seem to desire some of Papi’s love and affection Papi seem very distant from them. Yunior disapproves completely of his father’s affair by the vomiting when he gets in the van, a van his father got to impress his mistress. The van is a symbol of Papi’s affair and therefore Yunior dislikes the van.

Furthermore, as Ponyboy’s and Darry’s relationship remedies, Ponyboy continues to reshape his character to become a more resilient and pragmatic
The reason why I think August Pullman is nice is because even though he knew about the circumstances that going to school would put him in he still went because his parents had wanted him to go. In my opinion that takes some guts to do. Also after the incident that happened to with him and his best friend Jack Will where Jack Will said something mean about Auggie, he still showed up and carried on with his school life. Also he tried to talk his way out of getting a beating by the 7th graders that were bothering him and Jack even though they were two times his size. This what I think August’s character traits
Another example of isolation in the perks of being a wallflower is shown when Holden says “It would be very nice to have a friend again. I would like that even more than a date” (Chbosky 21) After Michael's death, Charlie wants any sort of social interaction. He is desperate because a teenage boy wants a friend more than a date. Charlie’s alienation is much more complex, he is not physically isolated from his friends and family. Despite this, Charlie hides his feelings.
While his brother feels like he could never truly explain anything to the narrator. Although both characters were different they found an understanding by trying to feel what each other were feeling. Also by coping with their tough childhood and feelings together without directly communicating. Sonny wanted so desperately to please his brother, but couldn’t find a way to avoid Jazz but still get that feeling he craved. Sonny was clearly disappointed and embarrassed by his choice of actions and despite what anyone said, he realized the choice he made was poor and it was time to follow his dream.
