When I read the part about when Shay "forces" Ruth to shoplift, I realised that this book is a description of reality. This whole book is about peer pressure. The only thing that is a bit different than peer pressure in reality is that Ruth dares to stand up for her self. Well, of course it also happens in real life that people don't agree with the choices that the leader makes. I was proud of Ruth in this part of the book. She did what Shay had taught her to do: to stand up for herself. Because I don't have been forced to steal or shoplift myself, but I know that it's happening everywhere I want to connect the whole book with pure reality.
