code orange by Caroline B. Cooney
theme and charactrization
The theme for this story is that people can be smarter then they seem. For example Mitty was not the sharpest tool in the shed at school but his street smart sills where off the charts so good he could overcome the abuse and out do the bioterrorist. " Mitty didn't deserve to be in anything advanced" (p.5). "They hauled him down the stairs by the feet" (p.181). Miitty is a very round character. For example we see a bold side of him at first then we see a secretive side then we see a depressed side after that we see a drive to live.
