Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Cassie develops as a character as the novel progresses, in what way does she change? As the story developed, Cassie changed in many ways. She also learnt a lot of things, especially about the slave trade. Cassie was a na�ve, rebellious person; she was not ignorant about what was going on. She hated that she was treated differently, and often spoke for herself in public. She often stood up for what she believed in. Cassie learnt, and changed in many ways through the incidents that happened during her life. The first incident that happened was with the school books. The way Miss Crocker treated Cassie and Little Man, was like she was forced to say those words. When Cassie ran up to her with the book open showing the chart showed how rude, and also showed the way she was taught. ...read more.

Middle

'It is something Cassie, white is something just like black is something. Everybody born on earth is something and nobody, no matter what colour, is better that anybody else'. She had learnt even after the Civil War and the Slave trade had ended, the way black people are treated by the whites never changed. There was still a fight about who were bigger and better, blacks or whites. After the Strawberry incident Cassie wanted to take revenge for what Lillian Jean Simms had done. Lillian Jean and Cassie met again and falsely became friends. Lillian Jean told Cassie her most private secrets which Cassie was using to take revenge. Later Cassie fought Lillian Jean for what had happened in the Strawberry.

Conclusion

'Seems to me if Stacey is not smart enough to hold onto a good coat permanently'. She has learnt that, to not listen to what other people say about your things even if it is not good. The last incident was with T.J's friendship with the older Simms brother whish leads him to be lynched. His family lived on Harlan Granger's cotton plantation. He was unfairly blamed for killing a white man during a robbery; he and the older Simms committed the crime. Cassie has learnt how the white people were against the blacks by getting them into trouble. Overall Cassie has learnt many, many things that happened. Putting all the incidents together shows that overall Cassie learnt a lot of racism, by the way white people treat the black people. By Tharcika karrunavannan 9S ...read more.
