Within Chapter 2 there are some very important key events which are all important for different reasons. In my opinion like Livi said above I feel that the disapearance of the young boy with the birthmark is the most significant as it makes it clear to the reader that cracks are beginning to form in the sheild the boys seem to feel surrounds them and the island. In the beginning the island was seen as a paradise like place full off 'enchantment' but now as the fire caused by the boys turns more violent and chaotic we can see the boy's have a lack of control on the situation. The reader can infer that the inhabitants of the island are indeed just children who have no real idea of what they are doing. The disapearance of the young boy wraps the chapter up neatly showing us the beginnings of a problematic future.
