When she found out that Kieren had killed himself her reaction was ‘you poor, sweet boy. What terrible thing happened to you that made living so terrible?’ Amy died of leukemia and said that she thought it wasn’t fair. She could have very easily blown up at Kieren saying things like “I was holding on to my life by a thread and you just gave yours up? How could you be so selfish?” But she didn’t do that. She loved him and just wanted him to be happy. And when she found out that Simon wasn’t interested in her, she didn’t become clingy and possessive or “that’s my boyfriend Kieren. How could you steal him away from me?” She realized that it would be a waste of time to chase after someone who didn’t love her.

And she found someone who did actually love her, and she fell in love with him.
