Heartwarming / Lost at Sea

  • Near the end of the novel, Raleigh sits on a park bench and cries, believing that she's ruined the "journey of self-discovery" that her traveling companions were on and that they only invited her by accident. Cue Stephanie throwing her arms around her and saying that no matter how she ended up on the trip, they were friends.
