Re: Middle Book Discussion: Esme and Iris

Besides being frozen in time, all that we take for granted is new to her, like a blind person finally getting his eyesight back. Iris has independence and self sufficiency. Esme recognizes the same 'march to one's own drum' in Iris with the exception that Iris CAN march without the fear of being locked away. Being in control of one's own destiny makes all the difference. She has a voice. Esme has no voice just invisibily. Iris can make all the wrong choices for herself while everyone else made all the wrong choices for Esme.
