Uglies Freedom and Confinement Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)

Quote #10

"You want to talk about brain damage? Look at you all, running around these ruins playing commando. You're all full of schemes and rebellions, crazy with fear and paranoia, even jealousy." (48.16)

This final example of freedom is probably the weirdest. In this quote, Shay argues that she's free from her old identity, the rebellious Shay who was "raging with hormones"(48.18). It's easy when we see someone in handcuffs to say "that person isn't free." But what if that person has lots of hormones or lots of anger—is that person free?
