I can see why you'd say that. Until the final chapter (and chapter 8, to an extent), the book doesn't really have a ton of meaning. It's mostly the rich adult version of high school drama until then. But chapter 9 really brings everything together and gives the whole book meaning. I bet you've finished it by now, though.
