Chris Dunkin’s Journey
Chris’s story teaches readers that people can change. He tries to pull his life together and stop making bad decisions. Hopefully, readers will also learn from Chris’s journey about how much of an impact those you choose to be friends with has on you. Chris must distance himself from those who push him to make wrong decisions.
Most Intriguing Character
Cathy is an extremely interesting character. She is extremely conflicted and complex. In “Gripped Part 3,” readers see into the reasons why she chooses to make the decisions she makes, which fascinated me. I want to read more about Cathy in future Gripped books, and I hope to see her put her life back in order.
Though Marc hates Jordan, many others like him. I think it is admirable that he wants to make things right with Marc. I believe that Jordan is not as evil as Marc thinks he is.
