Now her mission is to figure out what she did, why she did it, and get it all solved, finished and out of the way for the new Kathy.
4: The theme of this story is to always live your life the correct way, and keep the one's that matter close. You will never know who is really your friend, and who is not until the moment comes when you need them the most
5: Characters Kathy- She is the girl who hates her mum's new boyfriend, Richard. She does not get along with him and and is not willing to like him. This is her name before she gets hurt.

Tina then becomes Kat's FAB partner when Kat no longer knows the school or why Tina hates her so much.
7: Conflicts The internal conflicts with Kathy were that she missed her dad very much, but knew that it wasn't right to have him around. She did the type of things to Tina that her father did to her mentally and physically. Some external conflicts would be the times when Kathy smashed Tina's violin against the ground and stomped on it, or the times when Jade would bump in to Kathy in the hall way and Kathy would just have to deal with the guilt.
8: Resolutions Kathy solved these problems, for once because she was "Kat" now she had become a different person and wasn't aware of the harm she had once done. When she did find out she apologized to Tina and helped her understand that she wasn't this person any more and she was so sorry she ever did the things that she did.
9: About the Author Lee Weatherly daughter of a psychiatrist and drama teacher was born in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1967.

10: Recommendation I think this novel shows how it takes a major tragedy for someone to become a better person. It also shows who your true friends are even when the going gets tough will they still be around. This book shows how selfish people need to look at the other side of the story instead of being so self-centered and hard to get along with. I would recommend this book to some one else for the simple reason that some people need to realize that they don't need to take good friends for granted they may be all you have left in the end.
