I think in these chapters, the characters are starting to second guess people and themselves along with analyzing everything and everyone a lot more, especially our protagonist, Julia. More of the characters are starting to realize how serious the slowing is, and starting to trust more of what the hear about it from every source. If I was in this situation I would probably be doing the same thing and start worrying about the slowing more and more as time progresses. I think it is wrong that julia is worried that her being born ruined her parents lives and that she is blaming herself on her parents fighting. I've that like that before but it was only for a split second and not as in depth. I think her friends are starting to become un trust worthy and weirder acting around her. So far I am enjoying the book it is very entertaining.
