James Moloney: Angela – Chapter 4 Summary

In chapter 4, Angela continues to struggle with feelings of inadequacy and loneliness. At school, she is assigned to work on a project about Australian animals with her classmate, Billy Williams. Angela is hesitant to speak to Billy at first, but gradually warms up to him as they work together.

During their project, Angela and Billy take a break and go for a walk in the park. They talk about their families and their lives outside of school. Angela is surprised to learn that Billy’s family is not as perfect as she had assumed – his parents argue a lot and his older brother is in trouble with the law.

As Angela and Billy talk, she begins to open up about her own struggles at home. Billy listens to her and offers words of encouragement, telling her that she is smart and capable. Angela is touched by Billy’s kindness and feels a renewed sense of hope.

The next day at school, Angela receives a note from Billy, which reads „You’re a good person. Don’t forget it.“ The note makes Angela feel special and valued, and she begins to see herself in a more positive light. She starts to stand up for herself more and even confronts one of her bullies at school.

At home, Angela’s relationship with her mother remains strained. One evening, Angela overhears her mother talking on the phone about the family’s financial struggles. She realizes that her mother’s harsh words and behavior are a result of the stress that she is under.

The chapter ends with Angela feeling a newfound sense of confidence and hope. She looks forward to spending time with Billy and working on their project together, and feels grateful for the kindness that he has shown her.
