I think now that my book is done the main theme of my book is the importance of speaking up. Through out the whole book she was scared to tell everyone what had happened and when "IT"(the guy who sexually assulted her) came and found her and did it again she had to speak up. When he started to do what he had done the first time to her he was like you going to speak up and scream like you didnt do last time and when he finished saying that she screamed and the girls lacrosse team came and found her and she was saved, but she hated that everyone knew. It is shown through the second assult she got, and when she told her art teacher what had happened. It shows that she is stronger than what she thought and she can tell anything.
