Here´s a working thesis with potential: you have highlighted an important aspect of the novel for investigation. However, it´s still not clear what your analysis will reveal. Your reader is intrigued but is still thinking, "So what? What´s the point of this contrast? What does it signify?" Perhaps you are not sure yet, either. That´s fine_begin to work on comparing scenes from the book and see what you discover.
Is your thesis statement specific? Your thesis statement should be as clear and specific as possible. Normally you will continue to refine your thesis as you revise your argument(s), so your thesis will evolve and gain definition as you obtain a better sense of where your argument is taking you. Tip: Check your thesis: Are there two large statements connected loosely by a coordinating conjunction (i.e. "and," "but," "or," "for," "nor," "so," "yet")? Would a subordinating conjunction help (i.e. "through," "although," "because," "since") to signal a relationship between the two sentences? Or do the two statements imply a fuzzy unfocused thesis? If so, settle on one single focus and then proceed with further development.
