This is what she had to say about that whole situation, “I didn’t volunteer. You can’t take me against my will!” (Marissa Meyer, 54). Her saying this makes you think about what was happening and the fact was that her step sister had volunteered her for the testing. This shows that Cinder has no say so in her house what so ever, and that whatever her sisters or step mother say goes. Cinder is then turned into a test dummy for the doctor because she was taken against her will to the testing site.
It is hard for a mother and daughter to have a healthy relationship when the mother is viewed as an evil figure by the child. It is normal for the mother and daughter to have their small cat fights because that is what makes the relationship healthy. It shows that the mother cares enough to have these feuds with her daughter. Sometimes though the mother goes too far and tries to make their daughter something they are not, and that is not a healthy relationship. These mother and daughter relationships, along with their tone, can be observed in the memoir Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom by Amy Chua and the novel The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan.

Finally, the most popular setting in the movie is in the ballroom, when she meets the prince. Overall people are going to have their different point of views of the story and how they were made at the time. People had different point of views when it comes to sexual, violence, etc. Back then people didn’t really care that much if they see a sexual part because its apart of how life is instead of having sheltered kids thinking birds deliver kids at night. I don’t think this will change anytime soon just for the fact parents love this way of raising their

Primarily, readers are introduced to race relations through the relationship between India’s daughter Carolyn and her friend Alice Jones, the “daughter of the the colored gardener” who worked for a neighbor (8). While India, who judges people by their shoes and manners, generally approved of the relationship under a watchful eye, she would not allow Carolyn to attend a birthday party at the girl’s house and eventually had to put her in her place when the girl, showing her lack of class, was overheard singing a song with foul language, an absolute abomination according to India. Douglas, the only son of the Bridge’s, provides the best portrayal of Mrs. Bridge. Although he was “totally unremarkable” as a child, he did prove the most troublesome partially because, unlike his mother, he does not worry about much, including contemporary social norms (11). For instance, instead of coming through the front door to the house, he uses the back door as do the servants, which really bothers India.
I am reminded of two sisters who found themselves in a similar situations to Jig and Sheri, with an unwanted pregnancy. The eldest of the two, in a relationship with man with the attributes of the American and the youngest with a man with the attribute of Lane Jr. The youngest decided not to have the baby because of her desire to follow her career path, as I believe Sheri did in "Good People". The Eldest chose to carry and have the baby despite the odds stacked against her, as I believe Jig did in "Hills Like White Elephants", they both were faced with a decision that would affect the remainder of their lives. The younger would wonder what it would have been like to raise and see the progression on the child she so willingly aborted and the eldest knowing that she made not only the right decision but also the best decision, to allow life to come forth because of love, which may be rocky but it is still
Her experiences taught her a valuable lesson to respect oneself and to fight for one's beliefs, a lesson she must pass on to her daughter. “So this is what I will do… I will use this sharp pain to penetrate my daughter's tough skin and cut her tiger spirit loose...I will win and give her my spirit because this is the way a mother loves her daughter” (Tan 252). This resolution is particularly difficult for Ying Ying to come to as she and her daughter have not developed a deep rapport through their
