Roses symbolizes Gat's love for Cadence Sinclair.
The Clairmont home on beechwood Island is the biggest and most important house. The Clairmont represents the greed and power. After grandma tipper dies the Sinclair sisters argue over their moms wealth and possessions, while their dad can still control them. So the Liars decided if they burned the house down and all the documents and stuff were burned their problems would be gone. "Granddad held so much power I say. And now he doesn't We changed an evil we saw in the world." (Lockhart 202). This quote shows they burnt to house down to not only take granddads power over his daughters , but solve the problem of the family.
Beechwood Island is the private island the Sinclair family owns. The island symbolizes insularity. The island is cut off from the outside world by water. Harris the granddad of the Sinclair family believes in his own ways. And keeping strangers at a distance and ensuring Harris has control over who comes into the families inner circle. The island keeps the family further isolated. "Granddad barked, "Do not tell me what to do with my money, Cady. That money is not yours."(Lockhart 124). This shows the power granddad craves. He needs control over money and his children/ grandchildren.
Dried beach roses symbolizes Gat's love for Cady. In the summer of fifteen Gat is sending his girlfriend dried roses, and Cady's heart is broken. She is heart broken because that is what he would do with her. He later apologizes by giving her an envelope filled with dried roses. "He had picked me a rose from our favorite walking place. He had hung it to dry and waited for me to arrive on the island so he could give it to me." (Lockhart 16). Shows the beginning of their love, with roses.
