I loved how the character Cletus finally gets acknowledged as an important character and not just an annoyance to Summer. In chapter 11, the story shows Cletus' character as someone who helps bring Summer and Ob closer to understanding their grief over May. The character Cletus helps Ob and Summer by being there for them. In the beginning of the story, Cletus was such an annoyance to Summer. By the end of the story, I think she was glad he was there. I think this character would help students empathize with the "odd" student better. I think this story would be a great opportunity to talk to students about our differences. This character is easily relatable to students.
