Radical Readalong: Hallowed Day 3 Discussion

**Spoilers up to Chapter 12**

Well, I was hoping that it wouldn't end up being Tucker that was supposed to die. But I also didn't want it to be Clara's mom! I didn't see that coming. 

Clara is feeling conflicted about Christian. I wonder what will happen between them. 

"If you want to know what's going on in my head, ask me, " he says. "But I get the distinct impression that you don't want to know." 

"Hey, I want to know everything," I protest, even though that's not completely true. Because I don't want to understand what our future would have been if I hadn't chosen Tucker. I don't want to feel what he always makes me feel: confused, scared, excited, guilty, yearning, aware of myself and everything I feel and he feels, like he has the power to magically switch on my empathy, even when it's true--I don't want to know. I don't want to need him." - page 124

Tucker is starting to notice their connection and is understandably jealous. And now Clara has been accepted to Stanford and could be leaving him behind...I need to read the next 4 chapters right away so I can see how some of these situations will work out!
