Compare and contrast two friends Peggy and Maddie. Why could not Maddie stop Peggy from teasing Wanda Petronski?

Dear Student.

Peggy was the most popular girl of the school. She never tracked in a mud. Unlike Wanda, she was pretty, had beautiful clothes and curly hair. Maddie was her best friend. She sat at the front with students who secured good marks. Maddie on the other hand was more outspoken, though she did join in the teasing of Wanda, and made fun of her dresses etc, she was not too happy with the way Wanda was treated by Peggy, because Maddie herself came from a poor background. Maddie was afraid that one day Peggie would find out and tease her too, she was like a slave to Peggy. She wanted Peggy to stop teasing Wanda, but she was afraid that Peggy would be offended. Even though, Maggie did make fun of Wanda she did not like doing it, she was only following what Peggy did, she did feel bad for Wanda.

Maddie tried to tell Peggy to stop teasing Wanda by writing a note to her. She knew she would never have the courage to speak to Peggy about this matter. As she was writing the note, she pictured herself in the school yard as a new target for Peggy and the girls. She thought Peggy might ask her where she got the dress she had on and she would have to say that it was one of Peggy’s old ones. This was what she was afraid of. Consequently, she ended up tearing the note.

We hope that this answer solves your query.
