After Trevor died, not a week had gone by without a hate letter finding its way to Luce. Her parents started trying to vet the mail before she could read the poisonous stuff, but too much of it still reached her…She thought she'd done so much to move on from that nightmare: leaving her past behind when she came to Sword & Cross, focusing on her classes, making friends…Soon, surely the same types of people who'd come for Trevor's death would come to her again…Just like before, she'd be expected to have the whole story pieced together, to remember every single detail. But of course, just like before, she wouldn't be able to." (11.60-64)
Sometimes, no matter how much you want redemption, there are going to be other people who solely want to mete out punishment for the wrongs they feel need to be righted. Part of Luce's fear over Todd's death is that she is again going to be accused for something she had no idea happened and had no part in.
