When looking for a thesis on "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe," you will have to decide which part of the two separate stories you want to focus on or do you want to make a statement that combines them such as “Evelyn Couch found personal strength through Ninny Threadgoode's stories about Ruth and Idgie."

You would need to develop a stand with proof of the things in the story that would support your statement.  For example when Evelyn later has her parking place taken away, the normally domicile Evelyne decides to take a stand and she rams the person's car, imitating something Idgie would have done.

Whatever thesis statement you choose you just need to be able to back it with documentation and support with evidence from the text.
