Cody Smith asked:
With every single conflict except the death of his Mom and his abusive father. Many of Ty's internal conflicts were caused by Autumn, Sylv, Tomas, and Claire. Ty felt abandoned and started blaming everyone in his life including the entire school. When Ty hit rock bottom he was alone and abandoned by everyone including his sister. Could any of the four character's actions avoided the school shooting?
Nazlee Hasan Perhaps, they each have their own "what if I could' ve stopped this from happening" moment but the general theme is that there was nothing they could do to have prevented this. But in reality, I'm sure if they did more to care about the relationships with each other, Ty wouldn't have felt so alone. Thus, doing what he did.
