In chapter 6, Michael Andretti is displayed as a rude, arrogant and selfish man who only cares about himself and doesn’t want to play any role is Josie’s life. Josie managed to overhear some of the fight which occurred between Michael and Christina on pg. 65. Michael mentioned that “he doesn’t want her” during the heat of the moment, causing Josie to not want anything to do with her father. Both Michael and Josie both make a promise to stay out of each other’s lives on p.g 69, however shortly after Josie calls Michael urgently for help to get her out of trouble at school. (.g 85) This gives us an indication that it is only the start of their father – daughter relationship and there is so much yet to learn and love about each other.
