This story was written by Morley Callaghan, and it`s included in the book “The eye of childhood”.This story was really interesting for me. The topic of the story is connected with real life , with the point of view of a teenager. The story develops the feelings that a boy has because he doesn`t have a good relationship with his father and his stepmother. So, he decided to run away home, in order to have a better life.
Teenagers are difficult to manage. They can be very sensitive, perhaps too sensitive in some occasions. Nobody understands what they are going through; “nobody in the universe has ever felt like this before”.
Michael, the teenager of the story, in some way is a little boy, but in others is like a young man. He has fun with his friends, and suffers because of the tensions at home between his dad and his stepmother. He is in love with a girl, but he can`t find the right words to talk to her. Nothing in his life seems to be perfect; so for him there`s only one possibility to make things better… his solution is to run away…
