Character Role Analysis

Jack and Bunny Huffer

Although they're good friends, these two are like day and night, and shed light on each other's strengths and weaknesses.

Bunny hates reading, while Jack is quite the bookworm. Where Bunny is brave, Jack has the reputation for being a "spineless jellyfish" (2.63). While Bunny risks getting in trouble for fun (she wants to take Miss Volker's car to go see a Pirates game in the city), Jack gets in trouble for unintentional actions (such as shooting a gun he didn't know was loaded), or because of circumstances beyond his control (cutting down the corn because of the battle between his parents).
