The novel "Something Blue", by Emily Giffin is currently about a girl that is greatly valued for her beauty. She has the perfect family, job, and friend. Well, thats what she thought for a long time. Her friend, that she has known for pretty much her whole life had betrayed her. One day, Darcy decided to go to her friend Rachel, and confront her on the truth that she slept with the guy she really liked. When she walks in, she does't seem mad about the story and Darcy soon finds her fiance in her closet wearing boxes.
While researching dystopic societies, I discovered a common theme of individuals living in them, betrayal. This deserting of morality and friendship often results after much hardship. This idea of betrayal being the easy way out brought two different examples to mind. The first is the classic novel 1984 by George Orwell. Winston never betrays his lover, Julia through all his torture. Then, as he is threatened with his greatest fear, he wishes all the pain and fear to be put on her, thus saving himself from being eaten alive by rats.
Recently I read pages <#93 - #105> in <The Invisible Man>, by <H.G. Wells>, and I thought it was a disgrace because I cant believe the man would do something like that and betray all his friends for an enemy like the invisible man. It is like he is helping the bad guy and not taking the good peoples side and stuff.

Have you ever tried to hunt for food and make a living in the winter? Well, Rawbones and Capu and their family and friends have to deal this way until winter stops and spring starts to come.
One of the most interesting dangerous moments in the book Julie’s Wolf Pack by Jean Craighead George was when they had to survive in the cold and see Rawbones own wife Sliver die. How did she die and what happened to her babies is a mystery that can be only solved by reading the book.
