Three Black Swans Summary and Analysis - Free Book Notes

3. Actually, the lack of evil altogether was strange to me. Even the nasty characters in Three Black Swans had some redeeming nuance eventually. Caroline B. Cooney loves talking about evil. At least she did in her earlier books, which is all we’ve been reading lately. In one book, Don’t Blame the Music, the wicked sister (not the one with the tear-tasting boyfriend; different book, different evil sister) swipes the blanket that generations of her family members have worked on creating, and cuts it up to use as a seat-cover in her evil boyfriend’s van, where she and her evil boyfriend will have sex on it while smoking the marijuana cigarettes. That’s when the nice sister realizes that the wicked sister is, in fact, evil, a realization totally borne out when the evil sister tries to set the nice sister on fire. On fire.
