I just figured out that this is a two part problem for me:
This is just my fear/guess how the story will go, I have absolutely no idea if I’m right, so that is why this is a not a spoiler. I just fear this is what will happen: I have a sneaking suspicion that the bullies will be allowed to get away with their behavior because something was terrible in their lives. Boohoo… While those who was bullied will suddenly “become friends” with their former bullies. Because it is on the victims to forgive and forget because it is all over now, right?
I find that with the weekly schedule, I have time to dwell on all the terrible stuff that happens and tends to be solved only a few chapters later. Meaning, that by the time a bad situation is finally solved, I will have been thinking about it for several weeks if not a month (or more!). And that makes the negative situations in the book so much more grave. So I think I’ll probably read volume 3 (that is the last volume I own currently) at my own pace. To see if that makes me less negative about the drama this book series seems to favor. (But I’m also getting right tired of the bullying. The two main drama seems to be absent parents and bullying. That isn’t all the things that are a problem for kids that age…)
