Post A # 2
The emerging theme of the book is growing up. When peter grows up in the book he struggles to fit in but with his best friend it is easy. When his best friend drops him for cooler and hipper friends he has no one. When we grow up we go through many friends and some of those friendships break and some last forever. This is just a part of maturing.1.Sorrow: distress caused by loss, affliction, disappointment, etc.; grief, sadness, or regret.(P. 91) This word is used in the book when josie is in the hospital finding out the effects of the shootings.2.Affliction(P. 113) When peter is talking to his laywer and explaing to him how much humliliation he went through in high school he uses this word to express how much he was hurt.
