A touch Mr Flies but in your own backyard
Let’s start with one big disclaimer: If you think kids in There isn’t anything just weird and psychotic, then you either don’t remember your own childhood or you’re very naive. All the key characters in this story are 8th graders which means they leave childhood and childhood and depend on emerging hormones.
Yes, this is a crazy time for most people. There is peer pressure, bullying (though not much, to be fair), and a lack of understanding of the consequences.
But there is also a lack of attention from adults. Everyone is so wrapped up in their own dreams or drama that their children are often left alone. Too many. Again, they are 8th graders and can do a lot on their own. So, parents are busy with their own agenda – especially looking after appearances!
Basically, this 8th grader wants to find meaning in something. Any. So, they try to find the things that are important to them and bring them to the group. Quickly, this turned into someone else deciding what was important and that is when things escalate. Pets matter to one person, long hair to another, dead sibling to another.
