Besides the mystery, there is also a subplot about the nature of hate and prejudice. In South Africa, at the time the story was written, apartheid was a big issue. Benita makes friends with a girl of mixed race called Charis, and they talk about racial issues in South Africa and the U.S. during the 1960s. Although Benita wouldn't think of being prejudiced against anyone on the basis of race, she finds it harder to understand people with different personalities, like Joel. The two become friends when they learn to allow each other to be themselves and to appreciate each other's good points.
