Book Summary - CliffsNotes
Chet is an excellent tennis and trumpet player and possesses a sincere love of learning. Mr. Ludsbury - The master in charge of Genes dormitory. A stern disciplinarian, Mr. Ludsbury thrives on the unquestioning obedience of schoolboys and works hard to restore order. Cue the music, because we're heading into one long flashback. We jump to Gene as a sixteen-year-old during Devon's Summer Session, in the months before his junior year, standing before the very same tree (good to know flashbacks always work the same way). He has a talent for engaging others with his spontaneity and sheer joy of living, and, while he frequently gets into trouble, he has the ability to talk his way out of almost any predicament. Gene himself doubts what actually happened did he cause the accident or not? Finny then leaves school to recuperate from his injury, and shortly after the Summer Session ends. When the boys all come back to Devon for the regular school year in.
This silent resentment builds until the end of the summer, when Finny insists that Gene leave his books to jump from the tree again. High in the tree with his friend, Gene impulsively jounces the limb and causes Finny to fall.
A separate peace sparknotes
Finny's shattered leg ends his involvement in sports, a consequence that brings the guilty and fearful Gene to tears. Once in the infirmary and again at Finny's home, where he is recovering, Gene tries to confess that he caused the fall.
