Whyis Maddie embarrassed by the questions Peggy asks Wanda? Is she alsolike Wanda, or is she different?
Maddiewas embarrassed by the questions Peggy asked Wanda because she waspoor herself. She usually wore old clothes, which were handed down bysomeone else. She did not feel sorry forWanda. She was worried that perhaps later, everyone would startteasing her too. She thought she was different from Wanda in thesense that she would never claim that she had a hundred dresses. Shewas not as poor as Wanda. Yet she was afraid that the others mightmock her too.
