Chapter 23 Summary: “Dana Levinson”

By lunchtime, rumors have started that “the swastika guy” has been caught, but no one knows who it is yet (135). Dana, Andrew, Michael, and Caroline offer and debunk theories. When Pamela is absent from science class, Dana begins to suspect it may have been her and is shocked, especially since Pamela was an early volunteer on the paper chain project. After school, Dana checks YouTube since Adam always seems to have the scoop before anyone else. He has already uploaded several videos announcing that Pamela is the culprit. His coverage includes photos and family history, notably that her great uncle, Roy, was head of the Shadbush County KKK chapter.

Dana is furious at Pamela but also feels sorry for her. She cannot understand why Pamela would wreck her life over something so pointless. As she passes the park across from school, she sees students lined up to speak with Adam. Reflecting on how he had so much information about Pamela ready to go and how he has been stationed across the school for weeks, she realizes he must have known it was Pamela all along. He could have stopped this weeks ago but chose to allow it to continue.
