|Thought provoking , concerning|
My opinion: Jem's quest is somewhat reminiscent of The Count of Monte Cristo (good companion read!). She ignores what good sense tells her, that no good will come from her quest. And there are consequences, things she did not expect when she set out to ruin lives. So on the one hand, it has real, good lessons to teach us about bullying and the consequences to our actions. On the other hand, I found certain aspects of the story troubling. The end in particular was somewhat concerning.
