Colin Singleton and Lindsey Lee Wells are two of the same, yet each taking opposite paths. When we first met Colin, we had no idea how smart he was. Once we find out he is a prodigy, we also learn that he has trouble interacting with others and seems anti- social. When we met Lindsey Lee Wells, we just thought she was an oblivious teenager from Gutshot. Once we see her caring for Colin, and learn that she is training to become a paramedic at only seventeen, we are opened up to her smarter side that we see throughout chapter seven. Although the two are both very gifted and smart, they handle themselves in different ways. Colin is shy and has trouble making friends. As a child, he was severely made fun of, yet he never changed himself for others. He never stopped anagramming or speaking eleven different languages. Lindsey Lee Wells did. She changed for others just so she could be cooler or more likable. Clearly, both Colin and Lindsey are very smart, but have different ways of handling being made fun of.
