Post B. The Slow Moon.
In this section of my book, I began to notice many trends. One trend is that the teenagers in the book barely have a say in the society. I say this because; when Sophie was abused and raped, they blamed her boyfriend Crow right away. When there was no possible way that he could have done it. They do not let him speak his opinion, or state his alibi. The mother of Sophie was not even considering letting Crow get away, even though she never heard the truth from Sophie herself. The mother was just going off the evidence she had heard, not even witnessed. Another trend in the book is the claim from everyone in town that Crow would never commit such a crime. But yet everyone keeps those thoughts to themselves. They would not testify or tell anyone their view on how good of a person Crow is. There is also connections from the book to the real world. One of these connections would be that Sophie is assaulted and raped. Now that is a real life issue. You seen news headlines all the time of topics such as these. The book really takes an example of these stories and puts it into play. The author shows the family and small town’s side of one of these truly horrific incidents. This book is also connected to another book that I read, I can’t quite remember the name, but a boyfriend was accused of a girls death. When in the end they found that he had done nothing but try to save her.
