Transcript of Growing Up

Bryon yearns for change of scenery, friends, and lifestyle. Meanwhile, Mark loves being a hood and living in his poor neighborhood causing trouble. This begins a gradual drift and changes their friendship forever.
Examples From the Text
This quote shows as they grew up Bryon's interests grew and became different, and Mark's stayed the same. This caused them to slowly go from brothers, to strangers living in the same house.
"I suddenly remembered that time, so long ago, when Cathy had looked at Mark and for a moment I hated him. I wondered what it felt like to experience that feeling all your life- to hate the person you loved best."
That was Then, This is Now
As you get older, your perspective on life changes.
