Waking up in a trashed house,
Point of View
Theme of the Story and Application to Life.
I believe the theme of the story is to never doubt that anything can happen to you. Fiona found this out when she was remembering her past, how everything was perfect for her, and then looking around at the desolate, barren land that was once her home.
The theme of Stung is to never doubt that anything can happen to you. Many people in life walk around, thinking, oh, I will never get mugged, or hit by a car. This thought of invincibility can be dangerous and fatal to people. Fiona never thought anything could happen to her perfect family, but she finds out that both her mother and father are dead, and her sister under the control of the governor. Stung shows how, in a second, something so peaceful can be taken away in a SNAP. Teenagers sometimes think, if I take just one cigarette, I won't be addicted. But of course, this thought of invincibility is fatal. They can gain an addiction and later on die of lung cancer. Another way that could go is that they get caught, and they get arrested. Lessons like these should be taught, to never think that you or the people you love are invincible, because you aren't.
