Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?

Thematic Statement Help!!!


I'm reading the short story "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been" by Joyce Carol Oates for my english class. I need to write a thematic statement over one of the themes in one sentence. There are mnay themes in this story so i'm a little lost... haha.

I was going to focus on the identity theme on this story but I can't think of a good thematic statement. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you so much!

You might consider that Connie, like most teenagers, is in search of independence and identity as she nears adulthood.
