Phoebe , the protagonist in One of us Is Next , has a few traits that influence her relationships with others.
One, she is brave. Two, she is Strong . Three, she is sneaky.
These traits influence her relationships with others. “It’s gone dark, and I press the Home button to reactivate the screen. Phoebe slept with her sister Emma’s boyfriend.” sneaky comes into play here when Phoebe cheats on her boyfriend with her sister’s boyfriend. This is sneaky because not only are you being deceitful to your boyfriend, your sister too, and phoebe tried to do this secretly.
Later, on page 90, Brandon interacts with Phoebe, basically molesting her. “Brandon doesn’t listen. He forces another kiss on me, moving his body just enough that I can get an arm free. I keep my lips pressed tightly together against his probing tongue, reaching up to grab a fistful of his hair. I pull his head backward, then let go and slap him as hard as I can across the face” phoebe’s response here deepens a reader’s sense of her being Strong , and sparks a feeling of Anger that Brandon did this to her. I think she is strong because to go through that experience it’s very sad and a problem in this world today but for her to fight back and to make him stop shows that she is a strong woman.
