Simon and his Independence
The motif in this book so far is independence. Simon shows an act of independence several times in this book, meaning that is now a motif.
I should tell her now.
Simon was not supposed to fight off this monster on his own because the Mage insisted he did not. However, Simon still went on to do it by himself anyway because he knew it was safe for the town at the time. In result of this, he went on disobeying the Mage to do what he thought was right for his own. pg. 10
Simon was told by his magician friends, normal friends, and guardians to not tell Agatha, his girlfriend, that he admires Penelope, his best friend, more than her. However, he went on and told her anyway because he felt that it would be the best decision for their relationship. pg. 15
Simon was in foster care since he was a little boy. However, legally, he should have left when he was 16, like some of his friends did. However, Simon refuses to leave care because he wants to fulfill his dream of becoming an expert magician. If he leaves care, he knows it would only get harder for him to accomplish that. pg. 12
