For instance, you don’t let go of things as fast as we do or things travel way faster around the school then ours. For example , when this girl was allegedly missing it travels fast. Also, if you were this girl would you be open about trying to steal this guy even though he had a girlfriend? Well this girl was, even though she didn’t fit in she was all about trying to fit in . She had to get what she wanted ands she knew exactly how to get it.
What would posses you to become a horrible person? Why would you shut out the world? In this case she did whatever she could to get what she wanted. Even if it was hurting her loved ones.
On the other hand, Rain who thinks everything is her fault experiences a lot of things throughout this book.

Even though Rain thinks there is nothing wrong with her, she has a speech impediment. How would you react if you was talking to someone and you realized they didn’t sound normal? would you be mean and not talk to them? would you be startled but then realize they are normal just like you?
