I pity Chantal. Lisa and Cathy know the truth about her and Jon’s breakup, but decide to take matters into their own hands by not coming out with the truth. This causes Chantal so much pain. They should have been honest with her.
Who frustrates you and why?
Jon frustrates me in Gripped Part 1. He tries to solve his problems with alcohol and marijuana, and keeps secrets from Chantal. He should have faced his obstacles instead of avoiding them.
Who do you like and why?
Marc Dunkin is an interesting character. In Gripped Part 1 we learn more of the struggles he has undergone in his life, which he hides under a cool facade. This book gave me a new perspective on Marc’s character.
Who do you dislike and why?
Luke Davids annoys me. He goes to visit Taylor without telling Marc, even though he knows it would upset Marc if he knew. His selfishness and careless view of life causes pain to those around him.
Who do you most relate to and why?
Of all of the Gripped Part 1 characters, I relate to Chantal the most. She tries to live in a way that would please God. Even when it is hard, she sticks to her morals.
