Stranger Danger!

Here are a few examples as to how "Where are you going and where have you been?" and the pop cultural book titled "Want to go private?" show signs of stranger danger and possible sexual predators!

Unsafe

Red flags from the literary and pop culture side.

  • Arnold Friend admits to having stalked her.
    -He wants her to do what he says and gets aggressive when she declines.
    -When he is mad he "jokes" about harming her and her family.
    -He dresses like a teenager and talks about things that appeal to her age level when he is old enough to be Connie's father.

  • Luke Redmond desensitizes Abby and tries to make her grow up too fast and change the way she is.

  • He makes her grades drop and doesn't really care about her over all well-being.
  • Luke tells Abby to meet up with him and then he steals her, traumatizing her and making her lose her identity and self appreciation.

Baby blue.

Baby blue.

This songs echoes in the background of "Where are you going and where have you been?" the entire time you are reading it, so entrancing.

Ironic!

Ironic!

"A predator hunts down its prey, so the sexual predator is thought to "hunt" for his or her sex partners."

Timeless

Timeless

Just like many things in life, time doesn't change them much! Sexual predators and scary strangers have always existed. "Where are you going and where have you been?" was set in a time frame earlier than the book "Want to go private?" and yet they have many similarities when it comes to peoples temperament. Teens all feel misunderstood, you are always told not to talk to strangers, and more importantly sexual predators all want the same thing and have the same drive in life.
