Read full description of the books Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?: Selected Early Stories:"'The place where you came from ain't there any more, and where you had in mind to go is cancelled out. This place you are now- inside your daddy's house- is nothing but a cardboard box I can knock down any time. You know that and always did know it. You hear me?'"
This is a really creepy little story about the duality of the teenaged mind and the vulnerability that comes along with that. So much tension is excellently built up over the course of the plot, and so much is told about in Connie that her seemingly illogical actions make sense. Because of her yearning for freedom, she makes a pivotal decision that we never find out the outcome for, but one can only assume she's just put herself into a really bad situation.
Again, this is a great story about the teenaged mind and how easily it can be taken advantage of.
