“Greasy Lake” by T.C. Boyle
Although the narrator and his friends find themselves thrown into an unpredictable, violent situation, what textual evidence is presented that demonstrates that they are not really as “bad” and “dangerous” (at least initially) as they think they are? (Give at least two to three examples; remember to place quotation marks around your direct quotes). 2) What factors cause these characters to cross the line from seemingly normal teens to potential criminals? 3) How do you feel the narrator has changed by the end of the story? Remember that this is told from his perspective only so we are only privy to his change (and can only assume about change for his friends).
