The chapter that was most engaging for me was chapter twelve. Chapter twelve talked about the used cars breaking down on the side of the road and how getting help costs a pretty penny. A big theme in this chapter that sticks out to me is how whenever there is a crisis where people are cornered and they have no other options someone will always take advantage of the situation. There is always a group of people who will try to get ahead. These people have no mercy on anyone, and they don't care who they have to step on to get what they want. A quote from my active reading that I believe supports this theme is "You go steal that tire an' you're a thief, but he tried to steal your four dollars for a busted tire. They call that sound business." I think this quote really shows how corrupt people can be and how easy it is for people to lose their morals.
