Melinda, in a lot of ways, starts out like that it the book. She becomes a shell of herself from before the party happened and because no one else was there, she is lonely and doesn't have anybody to go to and to make matters even worse, she’s covered by the reputation that she has formed. In the book, Laurie Halse Anderson uses symbolism to convey exactly what Melinda can't say. In the beginning of the book, Melinda starts high school carrying her emotional wounds with her after something happens mysterious to her at a party during the summer.
In the story she walk behind her from a distance because she is afraid that someone she knows might see her and she doesn’t want to be embarrassed.

Kiely believes in weird things like that because she is very hopeful. She wants everything to be normal again and will do anything to get it, even if it means believing in a snow globe.
