Characterisation of Amy & Adam and the relation to their families

Amy is the protagonist in the novel, which is written in the first person. The fact that the whole story is told ′through her eyes′ gives you a very detailed impression what she thinks about several situations and aspects of her life and her surroundings.
Amy is an 17 year -old girl who lives with her parents in a middle class neighbourhood in some American city. Both of her parents emigrated from Japan a long time ago but they still follow their old traditions and try to raise and educate Amy that way. Amy is an Americanised form of her first name: ′Emiko′, her parents choice, by her parents but none of her friends uses that name.
She grows up in a lower-middle-class part of town racially very mixed.
It is said that she does like her parents and obeys both of them, but she does not like her father′s attitude concerned that she should not date Adam because he is white and comes from the upper class. That frustrates and makes her sad sometimes just because she has observed her father′s intolerant attitude towards Hideo (her brother) and his girlfriend over the years. She admires his brother for his strong will to keep up the relation with Sue (his wife) even though her dad has such strong prejudices against it. Her relation with Adam is very similar to theirs, which creates a strong bond between them.
There is a major change in her character, or especially in her outward appearance throughout the novel.
The first impression which she gives is, that she is a responsible young woman who really cares about other people′s feelings and opinions. So she never speaks up even if there is disagreement about other people′s opinions. She lacks of self-confidence in a way because she never knows what the others think of her and she always fears of being discriminated against. That makes her keep a sharp eye on them because she feels unprotected, by being Japanese. She thinks that she is only accepted in Adam′s group because she is a girl and his girlfriend. For that reason she has created a special behaviour, which makes it more likely to be accepted by others, so she by times is exotic, shy, submissive and pretends to like people as she finds them and would not venture to stand up against someone else′s opinion.
During the colour game she is changing her principles quite a bit. As a superior class, as she is at the beginning, she notices what power the upper class has accumulated against the lower colours and how unfair they are treated by the system. The revealing fact that she decides to help the lower colours by planning a rebellion, which is a clear indication that she feels sorry for them and that she does not wish to support the system any longer. Surprisingly, even after she is demoted she does not give up her idea to unite all colours.
From now on she appears as a strong-willed person, who is prepared to fight for the improvement of the system. She acts in a leading role of the rally, which gives her confidence. The fact that she expresses her view to her parents and Adam are good examples of the change her mind has undergone.
Generally, Amy has achieved more maturity during the course of the game.

Adam is the boyfriend of Amy and, as he has so much to do with her, he can be considered as the second character in the novel. He is from a white and wealthy American family who lives in the upper-class part of town. They own a big house, which looks like a castle on the ′Valley Vista′. Adam is driving his own car, a BMW, which is an indication of how rich his family is. He is the same age Amy , he is described as a strong and attractive boy and is voted second at the male beauty contest in class.
There is little said about his family and next to nothing of his own opinion about them. He has a younger sister, Bettina, who is tutored maths by Amy. His mother is described as being rational thinking without many obvious emotions or feelings. Except that she has many prejudices about non-whites and people from other races, and people from a lower social standard. She would like to see Adam going out with Eileen who is from the same social class and also a friend of the family.
Adam wants to separate himself from that kind of prejudice and is sure that he has chosen the right girlfriend. At first he appears to be the dominant partner of their relationship. He is very self-confident and experienced in exert his will but towards the end of the novel they become, more or less, equal partners.
He likes Amy for the reason that she is ′exotic′ and very different to all the other girls. He tries to protect Amy from the people′s prejudices as well as from other boys. He has had a strong desire, through the whole novel, to keep the relation up between them and to work at it.

vllt bringts dir ja was
