Friendship is a strong bond between two or more people that allows on another
to gain each others trust and moral support. This type of relationship is portrayed in a lot
of books, movies, and TV shows, to allow people to look up to them and grow with their
own friendships. Out of all of the themes in the book The Death Cure, I think this theme
is portrayed the most because they have to learn to trust each other and know that they

of time. Throughout this whole book Thomas doesn’t trust Teresa because he believes
that she betrayed them and was working for a group called W.I.C.K.E.D that they have
been trying to escape from this whole time. She was trying to convince Thomas that she
