I think Donovan is naughty because he doesn’t have a very close connection with his family. I think this because every time he gets a letter home from school he expects it to be because he was in trouble, so when his dad reads the letter he looks up and expects to see “the vein throbbing” because his father would be mad. I also think this because makes fun of his sister who is 26 years old and is pregnant while her husband is in Afghanistan. He doesn’t know how much stress her sister is in so that means he does not have a close connection.
