I could say the same thing about you Colter. I thought you were some sort of jock.
I didn't know you were in choir.
So why did we come to meet here for exactly?
Well we are going to have to talk about it again-the pink elephant in the room. Are you going to do it soon?
You know I love you right. I can't let you go. I can't loose you. I know how it would feel because my brother committed suicide.
In the climax of the novel there is a major turning point in the relationship between Colter and Ellery. Ellery no longer tries to push Colter away and she begins to talk more with Colter especially during choir.
I think I'm starting to fall in love with Colter. I can't let myself fall for him. I still don't deserve to live.
Colter and Ellery begin to hang out after school and they become closer and closer. Colter tries to learn more about Ellery and why she wants to commit suicide.
Colter begins to show feelings for Ellery even more. He tells her about how his brother committed suicide and how he feels guilty because he didn't do anything to prevent it. He tells Ellery that he cares about her and that he doesn't want to lose her like he lost his brother.
Ellery begins to realize that she is developing feelings for Colter, however, she continues to tell herself that she must commit suicide because she will only be hurting everyone else around her including Colter with her existence.
