The Red Tree I think the ending was great because how it ended back in her bedroom. This made it great because in the beginning her room was filled with all the brown leaves. These brown leaves were all the things she hated about herself. Now when she comes back they have transformed to red because red was her happiness.

You could tell if the main character was sad or happy by looking at her face. When the main character’s face was hunched and looking down with a frown you could tell she was all sad and bitter.

I think the overall message of this book is to show people how bad depression can be and how bullying causes it. It’s sending people the message to stop bullying because it can end up leading to depression which can then lead to suicide.

Then it gets worse and worse, so you start to question why you are living. That would be terrible. I think the author’s message couldn’t have been clearer. By: Ravjot
