World Connection:This book connects to our world because many people suffer from different kinds of abuse, and someone may act like they're okay when really they're not. People in different countries believe different things, but to almost everyone, the situation in this book is morally wrong. "He start to choke me, saying You better shut up and git used to it. But I don't never git used to it. And now I feels sick every time I be the one to cook." (page 11)
