Betrayal
“Secretly, and for the first time ever, I was angry with the Little Seamstress. Although I was fully aware of my role as spectator, I felt just as
betrayed
as Luo ..."(183)
Thesis
“I reminded myself of the prohibitions arising from my gallant commitment to my friend and commander” (152)
-Narrator
In high school, friendships are more important than love.
“There was... no conceivable
place where a Romeo and his pregnant Juliet might elude the long arm of the law, nor indeed where they might live the life of Robinson Crusoe attended by a secret agent turned Man Friday."

The narrator, Page 160
“Secretly, and for the first time ever, I was angry with the Little Seamstress. Although I was fully aware of my role as spectator, I felt just as betrayed as Luo, not by her decision to leave the mountain, but by the fact that she had not thought to tell me about it."(183)

Balzac and The Little Chinese Seamstress
is set in communist China at the time when re-education was ordered by Chairman Mao. It follows the life of two young "intellectuals" and the story of how they handle love and friendship through the re-education.

Conclusion:
Throughout the tale of three young adults under the constraints of reeducation, we learn that love doesn't necessarily provide hope. This complicated love triangle encounters many problems that require the support of true friendship, not the buds of romance.
