Also a big theme is the separation of Adrian’s parents. Her mother leaves her family behind for Mr. Lucas who is the neighbour. She is flirting with him in front of her son and husband. It starts with visiting Pauline, Adrian’s mother, when she was ill but then he visits her nearly very day. Mrs. Lucas, the wife of Mr. Lucas, seems to know that anything is going on with Pauline and her husband and every time he visits Pauline, she does anything in the garden, maybe to see something happening between Pauline and Mr. Lucas. For having the reason to leave Mr. Lucas behind. Pauline and George have many fights because of Mr. Lucas ans one day Pauline leave them behind and moves to Sheffield with Mr. Lucas. After Mr. Lucas and George having a fight.
The dog is also very important, he is not treated very well by the Moles. They shut him in the coal shed and because of that he gets ill and has to go to the vet and get operated. But the only person who is worried about the dog is Pauline. When the dog disappears she calls the police to find the dog. She cares much more for the dog than for the family, because she neglects Adrian and the household. She and her husband haven’t a good sex life. She only thinks of herself doing well with Mr. Lucas.
I want to focus on the topic of bullying and therefore an other character is very important to mention, namely Barry Kent.
• he likes to treat others badly by hitting and hurting them
• even some teachers are afraid of him and do nothing against his treatment
• he gets banned from the youth club because of his bad behaviour
• he gets always in big troubles , especially in school
I want now to focus on the relationship between Adrian and Barry, which is not a real relationship, because Barry treats Adrian very badly. One day he says to him that he will always hit him unless he will give him 25 pence every day. The problem for Adrian is that he has no money at all, because his dad pays his spare money by cheque. Adrian has no way out, either he pays this protection money or he gets hurt by Barry.
Once he couldn’t pay his protection money and so Barry menaces him badly. Adrian has to tell it his father because some things of him get damaged. His father wants to take back the menaces money and to talk with the father of Barry, who just laughs at him.
Only his grand mother could help him out, only she could force Barry to give back the protection money and to never hurt Adrian again. She has a very strong personality. So the father of Barry has no effect on him and he doesn’t do anything against the bad behaviour of his son, what is very surprising. Maybe Barry has this attitude of hurting other human beings from his father.
Divorce: In Adrian’s case his mother leaves town with the neighbour. So she doesn’t separate only from his father but also from Adrian and that’s the real problem. Now he would need his father but he is too depressed to take care of Adrian. So he has to stand the situation alone and loses both his mother and his father.
Rebellism: The Red-Sock-Committee - they didn’t wear red socks because they looked so beautiful but because it wasn’t normal and they couldn’t accept that it was forbidden. They call themselves “Freedom fighter for the rights of the individual”.
