Ruby doesn’t remember feeling frightened, indeed, she’s too young, and she doesn’t understand the situation. Nonetheless (=néanmoins), we can say, she must feel anxious or oppressed.The attitude of the mob towards Ruby is disrespectful, mean and very violent. They want Ruby to feel rejected so that she won’t want to go to school anymore.
