Week two; post one
Dilapidated(pg. 63) : a state of ruin or decay.
Consummate(pg. 65): to fulfill; to bring to a state of perfection
A theme emerging in this book is to stay close to the ones you love. John suffers deeply from the separation he feels from his father. From becoming a rebel in his teens to not going to college, John really could have used support from his father to keep him on track. Always trying to close the gap with starting new conversations, but nothing ever comes of it. On the other hand, Savannah has always been close to her parents, and she is perfectly content with being herself, and being a good person.
