The connection to modern society that our group has made with the book is the exploitation of children and teens. In the story, Philenocron stole the loosely attached shadows of adolsecents to create a massive army to conquer the Underworld. As a result, the children and teenagers who had their shadows stolen became severely ill. A real world example of this type of child exploitation is modern businesses that exploit the insecurities of teenagers. Because teenagers tend to want to fit in, businesses like Apple and Nike can increase prices on their products, so people will pay more money to be like others, for they also pay insanely high prices for technology and apparel.
