Even though, I think he should have sent it, I don't know if anyone would because it might be kinda embarrasing to tell a sibling who ran away to Africa and who you think doesn't even care about your life. But, he does and tha's why he should have sent it, to let his brother know about how he feels. It would help him get everything off his shoulders. I believe that if Steven had someone to talk to like an older brother, maybe he would be just fine living where Jeff is. Also by sending it, he might be letting hs brother know that he hasn't forgotten about him and that Jeffery's okay. Also Steven probably misses Jeffery and will find comfort in his words.
I think he should have sent it. Even though he new that Steven then thought he was annoying I think that could have shown Steven how much his little brother needs him. Also I think that it could have helped Jeffry because his brother went through something like e is gong through.
I think that Jeffrey made the right decision not to send the emotional e-mail to Steven. I think so because earlier in the book Steven got mad at his parents and he said that he was sick of having Jeffrey e-mailing him and having Jeffrey expecting a solution from him. So I think that it was a god idea not sending the e-mail because Steven was under a lot of stress. Also because you don't really have to send e-mails to people if you have problems because if you just right them out it feels like you are talking to them so that also helps if your under a lot of stress.
I dont really know but if he didn't want to send and doesnt feel comfortable sending then he made the right decision.if he needs someone to talk to about it then maybe he should have sent it.
I think he made the right decision by not sending it because I wouldn't talk to people about my emotions. Especially with my brother. He also made the wrong decision too. The only way something is going top get better is I'd you tell someone.
No, I do not think that he made the right choice by not sending it. Steven and Jeffery are never going to make up if one of them doesn't do something about it. I actually think that if Jeffery sent that E-mail and Steven read it, then he would have probably come home, or at least consider it. But, nothing is ever going to change if somebody doesn't do something about it.
Yes I do think that he made the right choice by not sending the e-mail to Steven because a.) he didn't exactly want anyone to know half the things that he wrote in the e-mail. And b.) if he was going to send the letter to Stven, then he probably woudnt have said all of the truthful things he said because he would be embaressesd. He just needed to write his thoughts and feelings out and kind of express himself to him.
I think Jeffrey did the wrong thing by not sending it. I think that he should share his feelings with the one he loves a great deal. Steven does know that he has to be more engaged with his brother. It should also happen because he is one of the only people that Jeff trusts.
Personally, myself I think Jeffrey did not make the right choice of not sending the email. First off, in my opinion, you do not write an elaborate and emotion email and just not send it; maybe it gets your anger, sorrow, whatever mood you are feeling out, but that is just ridiculous. And, think about it this way as well, what if he pressed send?Also, Steven probably went through the same experiences - girls, school, and tests. I mean just because Jeffrey over heard the conversation about how Steven gets annoyed with Jeff when he sends he on going emails, doesn't mean that when all else fails and he can't talk to his parents about some topics he should give up and keep to himself; he should contact his older brother, his role-model! As much as my siblings annoy me and get under my skin. They are the first people that I talk to when I get in trouble or disagree with my parents. We all know that just because Steven yelled at his parents and it slipped out how he feels about Jeffrey's email and melt-downs, doesn't mean they have a horrible bond and relationship. ~ Geez !! ;P
(ps gotta go read Chu Ju's house! I will have a stellar time!)
I think that jeffery was embarrassed to tell Steven all of these things. Steven got in a fight with both of his parents, and he was yelling about how Jeffery emails him every single hour. Jeffery probably didn't want to disappoint Steven by sending him a very long email that he has to read. I do think that Jeffery made the right choice by not sending it.
Well I think that he should've sent it anyway.
Even if Steven wouldn't look at it, it's worth a try. It was so emotional and informative. If Steven read it, it would inform him on what is happening. Also, Jeffrey wrote it for a reason so he should send it.
When Jeffery wrote the emotional email to Steven but decided not to send it I do not think he made the smartest decision. I mean, he pretty much poured his heart and soul into something to let his big brother know how he's feeling with all of the things that are happening. I'm not saying that it's a bad decision( which it totally isnt) I'm just saying that if I were him and I was feeling all of the emotions that he's going through, it would really be nice if someone could help you through your hard times. I don't think it's a great decision on his part because if you hide your emotions and finally blow up, you're most likely going to get frustrated that nobody noticed or tried to help, when it's really your fault in the first place for not telling someone how you feel. If Jeffery didn't feel comfortable sending that email to Steven, maybe just writing it out made him feel better. But I certainly know that if I was in his shoes I would feel a lot better if someone knew how I was feeling so they could help find a solution. Maybe later on in the story Jeffery will see that he can't do everything on his own, and maybe talk to dr. Galley or his parents. Seeing that most memories of his childhood were in the hospital, I can see why sometimes he doesn't want to show his emotions. If I was in the hospital all the time, I wouldn't want my parents to feel bad so I would probably just put on a brave face for their sake which is what Jeffery is doing because he's so used to it. Back to my point, if Steven saw that email and saw how much his brother needed him, he would help Jeffrey. I think we all know from drums girls and dangerous pie, that although Steven gets frustrated and needs to be alone sometimes he would do ANYTHING for his brother family and friends. He's not the type of person who leaves and doesn't stay in contact. Even while Steven is in Africa and Jeffery is going through some hard times, they know in their hearts that they are always together.
I think he should have sent it because Steven didn't even have his phone or anything like he said. So if Jeffrey decided he actually didn't want t send it he could simple go to his phone and or computer and delete it. How ever some people do this just to take out anger and aggression to almost feel like your talking to someone yet not Jeffrey send Steven a email when he was in Africa And he specifically said I Know you probable not want to hear from me and wont be reading this for A LONG time. SO yay.
I think that Jeffrey should have sent it because it shows Steven how he really feels! Also maybe it could bring Syeven back home from Africa since he's missing SO much! I think that Jeffrey made the wrong choice by not sending the letter!
I think that Jeffery made the wrong chocie by not sending the email to his brother just because he misses his brother. I know that Jeffery feels that Steven does not want to know about him and want him to say out of his life. H fells like he just left him. He I think that he should send that email because it will make him feel better. Make him less only and that all his felling are in side. That why I think that Jeffery should send the email.
I think he should of sent it because that might have made steven think that Jeffrey needs him. Then he'll come back to the real world or in other words come back home
I think jeffrey should have sent the email because email because it says everything that he needs to say to steven.if he sent him a phone call if he could he would probably not be able to to tell him everything.Also steven could also give him tips for all his problems,
