In chapter twenty we see a different side of Toms character. I think that it is always interesting to see something in someone that you didn't know was there. Sometimes you see something that is good, a new trait like, empathy or kindness. Other times a darker side of a person. Either way it is interesting to see something new. I can relate to this. I have a cousin who I have always thought of as pretty unstoppable. He seems so confidants, and sometimes brash. He never seems to show any weakness. That is why I was surprised when this fall he made a decision that might have made him seem weak. Our family seems to be obsessed with ISL schools. Everyone is doing something related to education on my moms side. That is why I really admired how my cousin made the chose to drop out of the ISL boarding school he was at. It wasn't that he couldn't do it, it was that he wasn't totally happy at school. This showed a tender side to his personally that I hadn't seen before. I think that doing what is right for yourself and being multi dimensional is really important.
