Laurie increasingly believes that the Wave has a cult-like quality to it. It is also important that Laurie’s concerns about the letter and the writer’s safety come despite the fact that she doesn’t know who he is. Even though everyone she knows personally enjoys The Wave, she is able to think abstractly about how the ‘game’ might affect those who choose not to play. Her ability to extend empathy, even to people she doesn’t know, makes Laurie the hero of the story.
