What Really Happened To My Parents??!!
People that are close to you should be cared for no matter what obstacles are in your way
This is the theme for the story because Jake and Kady try to find out how their parents died while the Skull King is trying to kill them. They cared for their parents even after they died. I can relate to this because one day in second grade my best friend, who was the ace pitcher on our baseball team got hurt. I was there to see the whole thing unfold, but I didn't take action. I had just heard the bell that started school, and I knew that if I didn't go to class the teacher would mark me absent so I decided to leave him alone and go to class. Only later did I realize that that wasn't the right decision, because I heard that he was in the hospital with a broken arm. That weekend we had a tournament and we ended up losing the first bracket game because we didn't have good pitching. The whole team knew that if I helped him he might have been able to play.
