Robin is a high school junior who's boyfriend just graduated high school and is going off to college. She is very insecure about her self and feels like she is nobody and that "she wasn't really alive before she met Chris". I think many teenage girls can relate to Robin, because low self esteem is a common theme among many adolescent females. Other teens may relate because they may be in the same situation as Robin and Chris. Chris was torn between staying in Iowa and going to a college near Robin or going to a college thousands of miles away. Many teens, and I have a similar conflict because we don't know where to go to college at.
