However within the novel this is definitely not the case. Many people share many wives treat them all as objects. Many a times, women are not educated in the slightest manner and are only taught how to do basic chores such as cook and clean. They are seen as prized objects who hold no worth other than to do house chores. In fact,”Men saw it as an insult that their daughters had to leave home, attend school, and work alongside men”(Hosseini 136).

Koly in Homeless Bird by Gloria Whelan reminds me of Matilda in Matilda by Rhold Dahl because they both insist on learning and reading even though their families are against it. In Matilda, her family is against her learning because they are all more interested in money, food, and TV. Therefore, Matilda was unhappy with her life, so she chose to live with Mrs. Honey because she treasured education just as much as Matilda. On the other hand, Koly’s family is against her getting an education because of cultural reasons. Using what I know, I predict that Koly will become forlorn with her new life and husband, which will lead to her running away from home to get an education.

By doing so, Yen Mah is able to depict how Niang cared more about what her peers thought of her rather than what her step-daughter thought of her. Though Adeline had an awful start in her life in boarding school, Niang continued to diminish her happiness. In the boarding school, Adeline saw other students’ eggs as “symbols of rare privilege,” and they distinguished the students into groups of “loved ones and the unloved ones” (Yen Mah 101,102). Because Adeline did not receive eggs in addition to her daily breakfast, she saw that none of her family members loved her enough to show that they have not forgotten about her. With this envy toward the fortunate students, she also builds animosity toward her family because the family continues to deny her importance in the family by leaving her eggless.

The study of these two novel shows how different people deal with the after effects of the same problem that is ‘Child Abuse’. In contemporary urban society, this problem of child abuse is of much prominence. Child abuse at times happens due to the neglect of parents towards their children because of their busy work-life schedule and so the outside world take advantage of the innocent children. Like in the novel, Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult, since both the parents were bread-earners, they did not pay much attention to their growing child and one day the child is abused by the priest. The irony of the novel is that the mother of the abused child, who herself is shown as a lawyer did not know about the case of her own child.

The environment of your household, is the main factor to whether or not, you are apart of this achievement gap. If your parents are encouraging you to do better, you will do better. If they are not encouraging, more than likely you won’t take education seriously. I see many of my cousins and my god sisters skip this achievement gap because of their living environments. As for the other half of my cousins, they are a part of this achievement gap because of the broken homes they come from.
