Beth, Danielle, and I ducked, but Timmy wasn’t so lucky because the book hit him straight between the eyes. I couldn’t believe Timmy didn’t show any sort of reaction because the only thing he did was pick up the book and started to spin it on his fingers, slowly alternating fingers after five seconds.

    Unable to understand that the little boy was playing, Jacob believed he was actually dead and started to have a breakdown. Another example of this is seen in the courtroom during the trial when the judge interrupts Oliver and Jacob talking to move on with the trial. Oliver responds that they were ready to move on and the judge replies, saying, “I’m tickled pink” (502).
