At the very beginning, the writer, Tommi Avicolli, intended to narrate about a Sissy. The term Sissy actually means a person who has been regarded as a coward. Bekers et al. (2015, p.127) stated that the writer narrates the nature of a pupil, quite weakling in nature.
The way the writer has selected and ordered what is told
In order to describe the nature of a womanish or feeble boy, the narrator begins the narration in an intense accusing tone and the narrator has maintained this tone and order until the end.
The attitude the writer has maintained in the topic
The writer has maintained a tough attitude from the beginning to the end. The approach of the author towards the boy was not very much sympathetic.
The voice the writer has used here
The voice the writer has intended to use here is out an out poetic. Avicolli has used some of poetic terms here that have an in-depth understanding. Those words includes sissy, memoirs, faggot and so on.
The way in which the writer brings in and connects to the writing of others
The writer has rendered an accusing tone on a pupil who is quite shy and feeble in nature and likes to keep himself aloof from all kinds of mundane affairs. Helff (2015, p.13) stated that some of the contemporary writer has also dealt with this kind of subject matter.
The way the writer ends memoir
The writer has concluded the narration making a polite and sympathetic tone while consoling the boy. Gikandi (2011, p.45) stated that the tone of the author at the beginning and the voice of the end has been exposed contradictorily.
