I found that in the story Loggerheads the author is clearly relating the lives of the loggerhead turtles he captured to his own. When he describe the loggerhead turtles banging their fins against the glass and how sad they look when out of there comfort zone it compares to his life when his dad wants to take him to a football game. When David is in the library and goes into the gentlemen’s room and sees the two men doing inappropriate things he describes their reaction to that of the flying squirrels while trying to escape and feels powerful, but afterwards he realizes that he might be judged by people the same way.
