Can Dallas Winston be trusted as a friend?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Dallas Winston is the best friend you could have. It would be difficult making friends with him, but once you were accepted by him he would be loyal and do anything for you. Dally had a strong personality and used his "toughness" to cover for the dissapointments in his life. Dally was the one who helped the boys escape from town and gave them money. Dally was the one who drove out to Windrixville to check on the two boys.  Without Dally Johnny would have felt more alone than he was.
