However, neither one thinks the other one is thinking anything similar to what theirself is thinking: “me sad because no one notices except me and Dad here maybe, and even us not telling each other” (133). Will starts to grasp that he and Charles may actually think about some of the same things and can use that to start a conversation between them and work on their relationship at the same time.
