Mockingbird Victimization Do you ever wonder why people are victimized for no reason? In to Kill a Mockingbird, we read a lot about different characters being victimized for no reason. Tom Robinson is the biggest Mockingbird in to Kill a Mockingbird because of the way that he is treated. Many of the other characters treat him with very little respect because they think that he has done something that he hasn't. Tom Robinson is innocent of the crimes he is accused of, but people do not believe what he says.
He has intense fits of anger and violence, accompanied by reclusive tendencies and the want to be hidden and unseen. To describe his fits of violence, Mr. Enfield said that Hyde “seemed to listen with an ill-contained impatience. And then all of a sudden he broke out in a great flame of anger” (pg 69). This lack of control over his rage is consistent with many different mental conditions. And though the reader is by no means in a place to diagnose and right off all of his flaws and acts of violence as mental illness, we also can’t dismiss Hyde as a purely evil man.
What he's father did to her mother caused he to have no trust in her own husband. Their daughter also suffered as she “bunches over as she walks… her posture and the concentrated way she gazes down suggest that she's a girl who believes she has a problem” (Yarbrough 642).

As for what “The Rest of Her Life” has in common with “Caviar” by , there doesn’t seem to be all that much.

Imagine being sold into sex slavery by one of the most important people in your life…your father. Well this is what happened to Lakshmi in the book Sold by Patricia McCormick. Lakshmi, a 12 year old girl, lives in a village in Nepal. She lives with her goat, baby brother, mother, and stepfather. Lakshmi despises her stepfather because he does not have a job and he spends all the money that her mother earns on useless materials.
Sold shows the money struggles that many face, which is why so many girls are enticed by the offers for money that they get. In the quote, “Ama wipes her cheek with the hem of her shawl. “Your stepfather has said you must go to the city and earn your keep as a maid,” it is shown that Lakshmi’s stepfather set her up with her “job” and lured her into the sex trafficking industry through the idea of supporting her family (McCormick 53). The ones who offer the jobs to the girls do not even have close to them, as said in the article by Kate Orlinsky, “The sex trafficking starts with the procurers in Nepal, who might be anyone: a stranger with a fake job to offer – or a girl’s own brother in-law” (Orlinsky). These strangers, “spend time persuading young women and girls with promises of marriages, a good life, work, and money,” which is what brings the girls to the decisions that they make (Williams).
