This thesis aims to know the personality of Carla Caroll and discusses identity confusion that Carla experienced in a novel entitled Drop by Katie Everson. Three problems are proposed in this study: first, How is Carla’s identity depicted in Drop. Second How is Carla’s identity confusion illustrated in Drop, and third What are the possible factors that cause Carla’s identity confusion in Drop. This study uses the qualitative method. To analyze how Carla’s personality is portrayed in the story, the researcher used the New Criticism theory. The psychosocial development theory analyzes Carla’s identity confusion in the story and the factor that caused her to suffer identity confusion. The researcher gathered phrases, sentences, and dialogue to be analyzed to answer the problem statement. The result shows that Carla’s personality is loving art, avarice, or a simp. She becomes a druggie girl because of her love and affection and also an insensitive girl. Several symptoms are categorized as identity confusion symptoms. They are: first, she is not sure about what she wants. Second, her sense of life has changed. Third, she cannot answer who she is. The research also shows that the possible factors that cause Carla’s identity confusion are: First, her family, second love and affection, third her insensitivity, and fourth her desire to be popular. Knowing the symptoms of identity confusion and the factors that caused it will help us be more careful about adolescent identity development.
