Published in: I better go Picking up his football helmet The review would be as dull as the movie Laurie: Something, Eric, please! He puts the pen back in her mouth.
Next week. I promise. He throws down his cigarette, stamps on it and — after looking around — he runs off. Laurie shakes her head. Laurie: Shouting, but knowing that she is not heard. I am NOT like my mother! She dances off.
Themes[ edit ] This section possibly contains original research. Please improve it by verifying the claims made and adding inline citations.
Statements consisting only of original research should be removed. October Fitting in[ edit ] Fitting in is as important a theme as any considering an movement is nothing without people; for without people to carry the movement forward it becomes nothing more. The reason the Wave was met with such success is because it made people feel like they belonged, like they were becoming a part of something higher than themselves.
Another important reason people were so eager to join the Wave was because many of their friends were doing it, and they didn't want to be left out of such a huge fad. Power corruption[ edit ] It is said that absolute power corrupts absolutely, which appears to be the case for Ben Ross.
Aside from overall student enthusiasm, one huge reason as to why the Wave lasted as long as it did was because Ben Ross felt like he was being respected for the first time. He loved how eager his students were to learn his material, but nothing he was in love with the power that came with their respect. And according to Ben, "it's amazing how much more they like you when you make decisions for them".
History's repeating of itself[ edit ] An old saying has it that those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it, and this seems to very well be the case for those involved in the Wave. The students don't understand why the Nazis did what they did and some of them downright disregard the events ever having happened. And those who are aware that these events actually did happen doubt the possibility of something as horrific as the Holocaust ever happening again, though little did the students know; the Wave was beginning to turn into a mini Third Reich.
The Wave has many different themes but this is probably by far the most reasonable.
Characters[ edit ] Laurie Saunders : Main protagonist of the novel, straight A student and head of her high school newspaper, The Gordon Grapevine. Initially supports the Wave but as the novel progresses she begins to see it for what it really is, a mini revival of the Third Reich.
Because Laurie sees the Wave for what it is that she chooses to distance herself from it and all those who are involved which subsequently causes her to be branded as an "enemy". Amy Smith: Laurie's long time friend, in constant competition with Laurie, which puts a strain on their friendship; a strain which finally comes to a boil when the Wave is in full swing and Laurie is no longer "special.
