Cause Of Death

Car Accident while drunk

Eventually his depression and unwillingness to engage defeats all other efforts. Chris is a lesson, a lesson in love and commitment and a reflection of potential lost.

Chris was a stoner and was always on alcohol. It is mentioned numerous times in the second book when Ellie always notices he is drunk by the smell of his breath and the way he acts.

Chris's untimely and uncalled for death didn't seem to affect the group near as much as the deaths of Corrie and Robyn, because it was so avoidable, and no one in the group was quite as close to Chris. However, Ellie couldn't help but feel horrible, because ever since Chris had joined them, she had given him crap and wasn't the nicest she could have been towards him. Chris likes to hit the bong regularly just to feel chilled out! It was said that you could tell he didn't die instantly, but crawled for a days and tried to claw, or even write poetry. His death is what finally broke Robyn. Ellie states that it was a shame for him to die for something so pointless.
