I think she could be either way because yes it was very harsh. But it was also effective. it motivated her to realize she cant sit on the couch the rest of her life. And even thought she had horrible luck she has to move on
I think that Jessica should be thankful that she has a sister that cares and a friend that cares too. They are just trying to help her to wake up from being mad and upset all the time from losing her leg. I think her sister didn't want to say what she said in a mean way but I think that she was getting tired of Jessica being mean all the time. Jessica's friend also wanted to help Jessica escape from being mad. She wanted to have Jessica get out of the house she wanted Jessica to forget about her leg and have fun with just her and her friend. It would also make Jessica feel better that she accomplished her "fear" of going out and trying to get around. I think Jessica didn't want to go out because she thought people were going to stare at her and make her feel uncomfortable. After she accomplished taking a shower I think that it told her that she still has the strength to overcome the obstacles of walking around and the little things we can do every day. Both her sister and her friend want to have Jessica recover in an optimistic mood. So I think that Jessica should be thankful for them being concerned about her.
I think thats she should be both. I think that Jessica should be upset because it is resonable because i dont think i know anyone that wouldnt get mad after someone just tod them that they are grumpy and annoying so it is understandable that she would get upset. Jessica should alo be gratefull though that they told them there opinions because if they see her that way then otherpeop le might to so telling Jessica thee opinions was like waking her up fom the dream that she thought wouldevenchually end and she would have oth legs back. while reading the book you could tell that Jessica fet the same way at first she was mad at Kaylee and Fina but when she really took into mind what she said that she is awake and now that she thinks she is living in a nightmare only she can change it. so that is why Jessica and i both think that it probably would be resonable to be angry, but at the same time thankfull that she has people in her lfe that could upset her but lso motavate her.
I think that Jessica should be thankful for there honesty and concern. I mean I know it is hard what she is going through, but she doesn't have to take out her anger and frustration on his family and friends. She has been down about the fact that she might never ruin again, and doesn't know how to be optimistic about it.
I think that Jessica should be greatful of Fiona, but not with Kaylee. Fiona wasn't mean to her, she was just trying to get Jessica outside. She new that Jessica was cooped up watching tv for that whole day and nby sending a invitation to have lunch with her, she got Jessica to take a shower, and the shower more than helped Jessica. Kaylee, on the otherhand, was just rude. She put Jessica down and made her feel unloved. Even though Jessica deciphered Fiona's invitation as mean to, Fiona only invited her to lunch. Her sister wasn't even trying to be nice.
I think that Jessica should be appreciative, but I really think no one woud be at that point. I think Kaylee was maybe a little too harsh, but it still helped. Jessica probably knows she shouldn't be mad, but that would probably just infuriate her a ton more. She should appreciate it because they are genuinely, most likely, trying to help. I think nobody would think that at that point because when somebodys yelling at you, you actomatically jump to your own defense, and until you think it through and use their words as fuel to strengthen you instead of infuriate you, you will be mad, even if you try to hide it.
I think Jessica shoud be thankful. Jessica was being mean to Fiona and Kaylee and she only cared about herself. Fiona and Kaylee were trying to help.
In my opinion I think Jessica shouldn't have been upset with what Kaylee or Fiona said. If, I were in Jessica's shoes I would have been thankful to have a friend like Fiona to get me motivated to take a shower, plan my outfit, and get out of the house. I would have been happy also with fiona because I had a friend in this tough time of "my life". I might have been a little upset though with what Kaylee said, but, I mean I would keep in mind that it is hard for everyone in my family about my injury and that they are feeling sorrowful as well. But, unfortunately, Jessica doesn't think like that and is feeling sorry for herself, but hopefully later in the book or next few chapters, something sparks with her mind and she feels differently about the situation she is in. Like someone once said, "everything happens for a reason." ~ Adelina <3
If I were Jessica I would be thankful for there honesty. When ever I get a comment that is honest or concerned with me that means one thing, that they care. Also Kaylee and Fiona are trying to make Jessica feel better about her self. Now since Jess is getting all the support that she needs she should also believe in herself.
I think that jessica has every right to be upset, who wouldnt be? However,I do believe that she has to learn to cope somehow and be civil towards other people. Since the book is in Jessica's point of view, her character is trying to ake it seem like its more their fault then hers. This is my opinion for this topic.
I think that Jessica should be thankful that Fiona and Kaylee care so much about her, but she also has a reason to be upset. I can only imagine the pain that she is going through and I understand that she would want to have some space. She also needs to understand that they dont really understand what she needs or what she wants. They are still trying to figure out what is up to them to do for Jessica.
I think Jessica should be thankful for Fiona and Kaylee’s honesty and concern. I think Jessica should be thankful, because Kaylee and Fiona are trying to everything they could so their friend Jessica makes the best of her life. They are doing this so Jessica doesn’t feel stubborn for the rest of her life, just because she is an amputee. One thing that Fiona and Kaylee tried was taking Jessica to D’ANGELOS. Jessica denied her offer at first because she thought she was going to be embarrassed of her leg. After a while of thinking about it she said to herself that she should go, because it would be a good experience for her.
I think that Jessica should be happy that Kaylee and Fiona were honest and concerned. First she was thinking, "Why would you say some thing like that to me?" and trying to be in the pain that I am in. Then when Fiona said that she was taking her out to lunch, Jessica thought, "Why would you do something like that to me or why would you say something like that to me?" Then I think that it woke her up and made her think yes I did lose a leg and my life may never be the same but it is not going to help crying in my bed. She needed to get up and take a shower get out of her living room and into the real world. She needs to move on after what happened to her. Also it is hard for her friend and her sister to be a little harsh to Jessica. Just because of her condition they want to have a lot of sympathy for her and not have to yell at her. It was the right thing to do though because it got her out of her bed. The state that she was in was so bad someone needed to say something to her. She might have stayed in her bed for ever. That is why I think that it was helpful for her sister and her friend to tell her the truth and push her out of her shell.
I think that Jessica should be thankful for their honest and concern because what Fiona told her motivated Jessica to try and want to go out and try things even with one leg! Kaylee helped Jessica want to turn her mood around and want to change her way of thinking. Even though Jessica isn't totally agreeing they are still helping her try to change her ways. Which Jessica should be happy and thankful for!!
I think she should be thankful that they shared the truth with her because if they hadnt she would just keep being rude to every body over little things even thought they were just trying to help...
I defintely think that she shouldn't be mad at kaylee or fiona. This is because Fiona was just trying to help Jessica out. Fiona knew that Jessica couldnt hide in her house forevever so She decided to help Jessica concure her fear. She was just concerned. Kaylee was a little harsh when she yelled at Jessica but in some ways it was the truth. It made Jessica realize how grumpy she's been acting.
well i said this in class but i think she souldnt be upset. that woke her up as i said before. she even said in the end of the chapter that she didnt know why she felt so good. However kaylee did put it to her pretty hard. and fiona wouldnt take no for a answer. so yes and no.
Jessica shouldent because if they dident keep on buggingher she would be come even more grumpy and angryShe should be thankyfu;ll for them or else she might be depressed and down all the time.
I think Jessica should be thankful for what Fiona is doing. She is motivating Jessica to get back on her feet. But Kaylee was just being a jerk. I dont think she was trying to be motivating, was almost trying to put her back down. Even though, Jessica should be thankful for what they are doing.
I think Jessica needed this push from her best friend and sister to wake her up because just because she has missed out on what has been happening doesn't mean that the world revolves around her. Jessica was surprisingly frustrated when Fiona was trying to help get her out of bed and back in to her everyday life but I think that Kaylee is just being mean even though it did teach Jessica a lesson.
