Nothing Chapter 26 Summary

  • As Danish kids do, everyone goes their separate way for 8th grade (it's like their version of high school.)
  • They never attempt to contact each other again.
  • Occasionally, Agnes takes out her matchbox and contemplates the fact that some things do, indeed, have meaning.
  • And, as she says, "meaning is not something to fool around with. Is it, Pierre Anthon?"
