I do think the main character Brent does have both physical and emotional damage. He has physical damage because of the burns from the fire burning 95 percent of his body. Although he has lots of emotional damage too because he feels no one will ever love him because of the way he looks. I think has more physical damage though because he was burnt so badly and doesn't look the way he wants too. I know Brent regrets trying to kill himself because he stated it in the text, he said that he will never look normal again and is afraid nobody will love him because of the way he looks. Brent wanted to kill himself because he was going to get in trouble for starting a school fire and he thought it was the only way to get out of it. I think people think suicides the only option because they don't want to share their feelings and tell someone how they actually feel because people are so judgmental these days.
