Lena escapes into the wilds. She has been walking for days. Raven finds her on the floor half dead, and brings her back to the home base (19)
Raven tells Lena that there is no past, only the present and the future (48)
Lena-for a split second- wishes she never crossed (54)
Lena has been in the wilds for 6 days, and thinks those days were wasted by not looking for her mother (63)
lena decides that she will work instead of clean... she now has the opportunity to go explore other land (91)
lena believes that if she completes her work and does it efficiently, that it will make alex be alive (104)
A plethora of scavengers invade the auditorium. Lena is afraid because there is so many, and runs to hide. She doesn't know where Raven and Tack are (150)
Lena feels nostalgic as Julian tells her about his past. Lena remebers her mother, and the good times they had together.
"It hasn't been quiet like this in a long time, and now that it is, I must face what I have been dreading the most." (12) I think what Lena has been dreading is thinking of Alex. Most of the time, it had been too loud and chaotic for Lena to actually think, but now that she has time, she must think of all the pain and heartache she has succumbed.
"My hands shake as I try to stop the bleeding. I shiver as the slick feeling of blood rushes in between my fingers and over my hands." (123) I don't think that Bree will live. She is losing a lot of blood and they are out in the middle of nowhere.
"But as I walk away, I can't help but feel like my stomach was tied into an insufferable tangle of knots that will never untie." (211) Lena feels guilty because she kissed Julian, when she hadn't kissed anyone before except Alex, who is dead, and who she loved so very dearly.
Lena tells Julian she is infected (252)
Raven and Bram press the blade into Lena's neck giving her the mark of a cured (257)
"'There are some things in life that we can't prevent, and we will just have to live knowing of those mistakes we have made.'" I think that Julian's words are very true. He's saying that there are mistakes we are going to make, and we'll have to live with them, whether we want to or not.
"The whole world closes around me, like an eyelid: For a moment, everything goes dark. I am falling. My ears are full of rushing; I have been sucked into a tunnel, a place of pressure and chaos. My head is about to explode." (233) I think that the person who spoke is Alex. Even though he had thoroughly been declared dead, there isn't anybody else whose voice would give Lena such a powerful and emotional reaction.
"Impossible. I close my eyes and reopen them: the boy from a dream, from a different time. A boy brought back from the dead. Alex." (233) This is one of the most surprising endings that I have ever read. After all, who would have expected that one of the main characters would be brought back to life, especially after his lover falls in love with another guy? It wasn't even expected that he would die in the first place. This author is clearly unique; she always makes sharp twists and turns in her writing that are never expected by the reader.
