Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
Ever's complete change from the popular crowd to being a member of the small outcast group seems to have several meanings. First, Ever has seen the popular crowd for what it really is. She recounts the day she was visited in the hospital by her friend and boyfriend. They'd been repulsed by the sight of her. Ever watched their auras change from concern to withdrawal. Ever's life is changed by the accident but is further changed by having been on the receiving end of this attitude. Ever notes at one point that she wasn't mean to the unpopular kids, but she also never acknowledged them. She has grown up quickly, forced to deal with the tragedy of losing her family, but is also dealing with a huge amount of guilt that colors many of her decisions.
1. Do you think most people in the "in" crowd are as superficial as the above paragraph suggests? Why or why not? Use examples from your own life and the book to support your reasoning.
2. Do you think not acknowledging other students no in your crowd is as bad as being mean to them? Why or why not? Use examples from your own life and the book to support your reasoning.
3. Discuss the reasons Ever might feel guilty about the deaths of her family when it was not her fault. Use examples from your own life and the book to support your reasoning.
