What is a good thesis statement for the story "A&P" by John Updike? Is there more to the conflict than Sammy just sticking up for the girls?

I can't tell you the exact thesis statement you will need, however, I can provide you with a formula of writing a good one.


Here it is:

Claim + Supporting Point 1 + Supporting Point 2 +
Supporting Point 3 = Thesis

In short, whatever you plan to argue or present as a topic in your essay, you need to have at least three evidence to back it up and the supporting points can be used later as a topic sentence in your three body paragraphs.
