    Have you ever been trusted to have the responsibility for something? In the stories ‘’Abuela Invents the Zero’’ and, ‘’All American Slurp’’ the protagonists Connie and the Lin’s daughter both have the same theme; a responsible person can be depended on.

     In story ‘’Abuela Invents the Zero’’ the protagonists, Connie has a lot of responsibilities. For example, when she took the car keys, she was trusted to have the responsibility to drive her dad’s car. When her dad tells her to take her abuela to mass, she had the responsibility to take her. At mass her abuela gets lost, however Connie still got home safely.

    In the story ‘’All American Slurp’’ the protagonist, the Lin’s daughter was also responsible. At first when her mom was looking for flour and there was none left, she wanted to help so she decided to go buy flour. Later, after the dinner with the Gleasons, Meg invited her to Dairy Queen, so she took her out for a milkshake. Finally when they got there, the Lin’s daughter insisted to pay for the milkshake.

   The stories ‘’All American Slurp’’ and, ‘’Abuela Invents the Zero’’ both have similarities and differences. For example one similarity is that they both have the same theme. Also the abuela from ‘’Abuela Invents the Zero’’ and the Lin’s daughter both are afraid to fit in. However,in both stories they are responsible for things. But, different things.

   In both stories responsibility plays an important role. Connie and the Lin’s daughter were depended on because they were responsible. A responsible person can be depended on.
