  1. Yes, I do feel badly for Rose in this book. I feel even though her brother was not the best kid, she still loved him very much. He was the only one who understood her.

  2. I do feel bad for characters in the book. I feel bad for Patrick even if he wasn’t the nicest. I feel bad for him because only his sister understood him. Also, it feels like Patrick didn’t know any better. I also feel bad for Sophia because she was the only one that took the time to listen to Patrick and people should listen to her also.
