The Hunger Games is a great example of my theme. Throughout the games, people team up with one another to get ahead or help each other out. A good example of trust in the movie is when peeta and katniss team up and continue to be with each other until the games are over. Although in the end only one person can win the games, trust is a big part of getting on top and getting ahead.
The book "The Outsiders" is a good example of my theme. In the novel there are 2 gangs made of different social classes that are constantly at odds with each other. In order to survive and not get hurt, these kids have to trust each other and stick together. A good example of trust in the book is when Ponyboy and Johnny go on the run after Johnny murders someone that was drowning Ponyboy.

Early in the novel, Gene has feelings of contempt and distrust towards Finny because he believes that Finny is purposely holding him back in his school work and life in general. If Gene could have been honest about how he felt, and expressed his feelings to Finny, he would have realized that Finny is not an enemy and that he is just being himself, and they would be able to continue on as great friends without any problems.
