In every choice you make there is a negative and positive consequence as shown in the Novel, Big Things Happen.
In the Novel, Big Things Happen written by Tom Smith, there are always consequences for a person’s actions. These consequences can either be positive or negative and we make choices in everyday living. A consequence is a result, inte3nded or unintended, good or bad, of our actions. Life proves that we are accountable for our actions and consequences are always positive or negative. Positive choices often have positive consequences. However, of course the opposite is also possible and even probable. This affects not only the individual but also the wider community.
