Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

The behavior of the four teenagers is very hard to believe. They essentially murdered their friend because his being sick annoyed them. There’s no atonement, no comeuppance, just a flat confession. There’s also no real character development—we know little or nothing about the characters (even the narrator) by the end of the story.
