InВ theВ novel, В AnnieВ John, В byВ JamaicaВ Kincaid, В AnnieВ hasВ anВ identityВ crisis. В AsВ sheВ entersВ herВ adolescenceВ stage, В sheВ buildsВ relationshipsВ withВ othersВ basedВ offВ herВ needВ forВ love. В TheВ loveВ thatВ sheВ getsВ fromВ herВ motherВ isВ slowlyВ diminishingВ andВ AnnieВ doesn'tВ likeВ that. В HerВ feelingsВ forВ herВ motherВ startВ fromВ confusionВ andВ laterВ turnsВ intoВ hatred. В AlthoughВ AnnieВ strugglesВ toВ findВ herВ identityВ separateВ fromВ herВ mother, В she'sВ unableВ toВ escapeВ herВ connectionВ withВ herВ mother, В revealingВ thatВ В AtВ first, В AnnieВ doesn'tВ wantВ herВ ownВ identityВ becauseВ herВ motherВ andВ herВ wereВ inseparable. В AnnieВ becomesВ jealousВ ofВ herВ mother'sВ overflowingВ affectionВ forВ herВ father. В JealousyВ isВ theВ firstВ stepВ inВ herВ separationВ fromВ herВ mother. В SheВ takesВ herВ mother'sВ kissesВ andВ hugsВ forВ grantedВ untilВ thatВ attentionВ isВ divertedВ toВ herВ father. В В WhenВ sheВ catchesВ herВ parentsВ havingВ sex, В herВ motherВ isВ theВ onlyВ thingВ sheВ sees. В SheВ says, В " ItВ doesn'tВ interestВ meВ whatВ theyВ wereВ doingВ­В onlyВ thatВ myВ mother'sВ handВ wasВ onВ theВ smallВ ofВ myВ father'sВ back... ” (30), В whichВ showsВ thatВ sheВ feelsВ backВ stabbed. В ThatВ smallВ ofВ anyone'sВ backВ isВ intimate, В andВ showsВ thatВ aВ personВ caresВ deeplyВ forВ another. В AnnieВ feelsВ likeВ herВ motherВ betraysВ herВ becauseВ sheВ isВ noВ longerВ theВ receiverВ ofВ theВ warmВ andВ welcomeВ hand. В LaterВ onВ inВ theВ book, В AnnieВ isВ punishedВ forВ defacingВ herВ historyВ textbookВ andВ sheВ receivesВ aВ punishmentВ forВ it. В InsteadВ ofВ feelingВ sorrowВ andВ remorse, В sheВ " couldn'tВ waitВ toВ getВ homeВ andВ theВ comfortВ ofВ myВ mother'sВ kissesВ andВ arms. В NothingВ toВ worryВ aboutВ thereВ yet... ” (82В­83), В whichВ showsВ thatВ sheВ believesВ herВ motherВ willВ comfortВ herВ ofВ herВ wrongdoings. В Instead, В whenВ sheВ arrivedВ home, В herВ motherВ andВ herВ fatherВ wereВ alreadyВ inВ aВ deepВ conversation. В HerВ motherВ doesn'tВ noticeВ andВ sheВ thinksВ thatВ herВ motherВ likesВ herВ fatherВ betterВ thanВ her. В AnnieВ JohnВ isВ noВ longerВ theВ centerВ ofВ attentionВ toВ herВ mother. В В...
