Judy has an Issue

Judy never had been on best terms with her Dad and that's why she has such big problems she is always trying to get his attention by braking rules and hanging with the wrong crowd and she is very needy and just wants someone to love her and she wants to love someone. Judy always needs to be in company with someone and they must be giving her attention. without attention Judy turns into a rebel doing everything her parents don't want. Judy shows her rebellious acts by wearing make-up trying to be attractive to attract people to her to get the attention she wants.

Did Judy change

Yes I believe that Judy did change throughout the book Judy started the book wanting everyone to love her and needed everyone to love her but throughout the experiences she had in the book she realized she didn't need everyone to love her she just needed someone to love, and have fun with. I believe that if the movie kept going it would show Judy getting along better with her parents and making better choices.

Symbols (Plato's mismatching socks)

This is a good symbol throughout the movie because it shows how lost, scared and confused Plato is and how he just needs someone in his life to help guide him and protect him and make him feel safe even when danger is around that is why he liked James a lot because he made James into a father figure in his life.


The Theme of the story is about how teenage deal with their problems like peer pressure, parental or abandonment issues and Just trying to fit in and being the new kid in the school.

Would Buzz have been a good guy if he didn't die

No, Buzz would not have changed and by not changing it would cause Judy to never like James so they would never have gone to the mansion and would never had to fight Buzzes friends which would mean that Plato would most likely still be alive. If Buzz survived they would have found more and more ways of being mean to James terrorizing him and making fun of him.
