Contrasting characters

You have now completed the book “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-lime Indian” by Sherman Alexie, and you have gotten to know the characters quite well. Your task is to CONTRAST Junior with one other character (you may choose from among Rowdy, Roger, Gordy, Penelope, or Mary; another option is to contrast Junior from the beginning of the novel with Junior at the end). Consider how these 2 characters are different in their personalities, behavior, or lessons learned in the book. Of course, in your conclusion, you should include a “So What?: or what we can learn by contrasting these characters (i.e., what would Alexie want us to understand?).
