In Agree to Disagree I noticed this passage:
We decided to agree to disagree on whether Francie handled the situation with Katie’s decision about sending Neeley to school and Francie to work maturely or immaturely. Although, Francie makes valid points about the lying about her age to her boss,with it being a struggle with keeping her looks reflective of the age she is pretending to be, she withholds the information about her raise just so she would be able to go back to school. Also, once Neeley claims that he will run away, Francie consoles Katie, reassuring her that Neeley won’t stick to his plan of leaving, at first. After she sees relief come to Katie’s face, she is responds with “But I’m the one who’ll go away and I won’t make a speech about it”. It’s almost as if Francie acting like a “one-upper” in this situation, and she is immature with saying that she will leave, too, just like Neeley said he would.
