The Conflict

Big image

Depression

The major conflict in this book is depression. After the car accident Andy and his friends were involved in, which lead to Rob Washington's death, Andy Jackson became very depressed and started to blame himself for Rob's death. The symbol I pick to represent this conflict is the car that was involved in the accident. I picked this because the car and the crash is what cause Andy to be depressed.

The interesting thing about this book is the the author tells this story in different point of views and in other ways too. The author tells the story in newspaper articals, phone calls, letters, school assignments, and a lot more different ways, I definitely like the format and the style the author used for this story.
