        I was heartbroken when Woolly killed himself.  I don’t cry at books (much 😊), but I cried about this. People with handicaps are sooooo discriminated against! Why couldn’t he have gone with Emmett? Someone said the book had to end the way it did- it was a perfect ending. Why???

          I agree, I believe it was the right ending. Wooly never felt at home anywhere. He connected with the brothers, but he wasn’t a brother. He just wanted to go “home,” to leave this earth. Not every story has a happy ending. Most don’t. Not in real life. This ending made the book ‘real.’

            Life is messy. The ending sadly portrays that well.
