Annie John is a bildungsroman, a coming of age story. The narrator, Annie, is an adult who is explaining how she established her own identity. As all children do, the child Annie hit a point when she was testing the control she had over other people. Her desire to make Sonia suffer is a desire to test her own abilities to control the emotions of others. Annie doesn't do because she wants Sonia to hurt; she does it because she is trying to understand her own place in the world.
