Bernice Bobs Her Hair

I liked how we watched the movie before we actually read the book so we can see what the differences are between the two. This story was interesting but I kept getting confused with all the different names and when I was reading I was comparing it to the movie and they did not match up at all. I think that the way Marjorie treated Bernice was absolutely horrible, but Bernice handled the situation quite well. If it was me I would have just left. I do have one question though because I can't remember, in the movie didn't Bernice leave her braids in Warren's car, in the book she threw them on the porch? I hope that I am doing this right because I am not quite sure. Overall this was a really good short story compared to the types of things that I had to read in high school.

You're right--in the movie Bernice tosses Marjorie's braids into the front seat of Warren's car, not onto any porch.
