One event that happened in this book that proves that the theme is true is when people who are sober came to rehab and talked to the kids and told them that things will get better and that it will get easier to go without the things they are addicted to.

People read countless stories that have a variety of themes in them. When people read “Angela's Ashes” by Frank McCourt, and “The Street” by Ann Petry, they can probably sense that there is something similar among the two stories', and that's because they share a common theme.

The reader will discover this similar theme of persevering through problems with the way the authors utilize the character of characters feelings and personality, the way setting creates a backdrop that establishes the tone of the story, and events that cause conflict to the character.

Joseph L.

In comparison to each other, Eve and Margo’s general behaviour, mannerisms and character traits are distinctly separate.

The motivations and boundaries of the two are depicted as clearly different from each other, where Eve is revealed as a ruthless liar who would “do much more” to get what she wants, in comparison
I think the overall theme is that doubt eventually leads to dissatisfaction. I think this because towards the beginning, Alice was very confident with her relationship.

This showed that she wanted to know that side of Marc that the ex-wife had know. I think the lack of character point-of-view does play into the theme because

From doing this they figured out a clue. My third example is they worked together to be able to survive while running away. They both contributed money and they even washed their clothes. They had found a way to earn money too. In conclusion, that is why the theme of the story is teamwork.
