Sometimes your “Friends” can be “Fiends.” When Melinda goes to her locker, she find a note from Heather asking her to come to her house.

I feel like in this part of the story, it’s trying to explain, how other people are seeing that women are trying to step up and change everything, and the women in the story is trying her best to find the best possible solution in order for men to realize women should have the same choices and rights.
While there, he asks her with complete seriousness: “Do you think there’s something in me that drives women crazy?” (Plath, 1971, p. 237).

The Slender Man Trials was when a girl and her friend stabbed their classmate Payton to please horror character film Slender Man. This story relates to Slender Man Trial because the two girls got arrested but will not cause Peyton to forget the trauma she went through. Arresting someone doesn’t always change what happened sometimes it makes the case worse. Your pain can’t always be healed by punishing people who commited the crime and I think that’s how Forman tries to get his message across. Even though you might feel like this is the case it isn’t
