The Diary of the Hopeless

Charlotte Maclean

My entry expresses the value of kindness, more specifically mature love and true friendship. This is because the story is about a young boy who falls in love with the person who wrote this diary that was found on his doorstep. He then finds out that the diary owner was his childhood friend who he had a crush on, but was too shy and awkward to say. They drifted apart when she had to move away from him and he forgot about her after a while. Another value that this story explores is health. As the female character has terminal cancer and is dying. It explores how she is quite desperate to find her childhood friend before she dies.
