Christopher faces many familiar situations throughout this novel, but his reactions are something everyone can relate to.

Christopher fights constantly with his parents. He's obvious with the way he feels, and young readers can relate to that inner turmoil.

Christopher has a complicated relationship with both his parents, which is evident from his father's lies and his mothers absence. Children and teens all over face this problem every day, and it impacts Christopher, too.


Spending his time daydreaming about flying to outerspace, a concept not foreign to young adults struggling with their current place in the world, Christopher is candid about what he wants and why he can or cannot accomplish his goals.

Amidst the turmoil, Christopher finds a way to grow from his experiences, a great example for perserverance and positivity.

Christopher uses a small, significant incident to ignite a determination within himself. From that, he discovered that life has more to offer than hiding in the shadows of misfortune.
