I’m now on Chapter 10 of The Beginning of the End and we’re going to rewind to a different time and place today.
Chapter 10 is called “The Breakfast Gang”, which is a tribute to “The Breakfast Club”.
As we all know, “The Breakfast Club” was a movie that was written, directed, and produced by John Hughes and released in theaters in 1985. The movie centered on five completely different teenagers who were forced to spend an entire Saturday in detention. While in detention, all five of them realize that they have something in common and take on the mean vice principal.
In this story, Mara, Stuart, Irene, Pearl, and Trevor are forced to go to Saturday school due to their notoriety in the school. Trevor was once a bully and Mara, Stuart, Irene, and Pearl were friends with Tanya Shinnok, who was the most hated girl living in Harrison Creek. The Upright Students Brigade decided that the five kids in question needed to be punished for their anti-social behavior and not going along with the crowd and bullying Tanya.
Vice principal Cullmann is also there, yet he doesn’t have any idea that the kids are in the school until he discovers them in the library. He questions them about their lives and why they were being punished. The answers each kid gives him are nothing less than shocking.
At the end of the day, however, Trevor writes an essay which addresses the issue of himself and the Teen Rebels and who they truly were according to themselves.
As for Shara, she doesn’t appear in this episode very much, but we see her moving to a brand-new apartment.
So I’m going to get on this chapter, which could take all weekend to write. See you later.
