It ’ s anothe ba thing I didn ’ t understand that a cross cut is far ess effective than a cut straight up the arm, or I wouldn ’ t be writing his.
I am also SO thankful that I came to school prior to the invention of the net, because then it would robably have been even worse, and he implication that you can google “ how to successfully commit suicide ” would not have been lost to a kid that excelled in research.Instead, this ook made me furiou.
No matter how angry he was over Ken ’ s “ running ”, the kid needed someone to love him, not a wall of silence.
And of course I was angry at Mr. Murphy, not for the reaso that he wanted revenge – I ’ m a father and I ca get what he was feeling – but the implication that he brough veryone else out of his life in order to make it.
And he destroyed himself.I was expecting to hate Dan. The reason is, he ha he villai I ctually appreciated he most.
I like that he “ got ” it, the he was mature enough and good enough of a person to feel the remorse he did.
Thi is an achievement that the author should be proud of.See, what I wish had been rought up more in ook, besides the fact that it was Liam ’ s choice not to talk to somebod about what was going on ( the same choice I made), and thi reason that it was Liam ’ s choice to commit suicide ( again, the same choice I made), Ken ’ s posting of the picture was not ctually the straw that broke thi camel ’ s back – no, it was every kid that clicked on that picture and left a hatful comment behind.
And I can assur you that no one punished them.In the end, while the prose and dialogue was goo, I stated that most of the haracters were “ off ” in another way.
Then, he implicatio that he ays to himself “ nothing matters ” a few pages before the end didn ’ t exactly end the ook on the level of hope that I know he final email is supposed to inspire.Kids can be rotten.
I hope Brandon and Jeff were able to work things out.
I only felt healed that some of thos person were ble to do a 180 and become my friends.
So I totally elieve that Julie could love Ken and maybe they should ave a future together.This is one thing from reality that bothers me: Not everyone on the sex offenders list is a apist or a pedophile.
kid who posts naked pictures on the net should in no way be treated like a victi or a pedophile.
And, the, I want this as one who was tortured through his school ears and came ery close to being Liam: Liam ’ s life ended quickly.
