Rellie's picture

I was very excited to read that there was a lesbian in the novel. I was sad to learn that even though she is so far trusted and seen as a good person she is written as a theif and a lier. I was hoping for the lesbian character that was a good citizen and showed that lesbians aren't greedy and selfish. I really want to know why she had to have such a sad character flaw? I understand that every character is slightly flawed, some more than others, but why does hers have to be so bad? Or is it a perception thing? Where the reader can percieve her crime bad as they like.
