Hope you guys are loving the book so far! This one is a lot shorter than The One and Only so I hope this schedule isn’t too slow for you! If it is, please leave a comment below and we can come up with a new system of schedules based on the length of the book. It seemed to me this book started out with mostly character building, so these questions are probably a bit slim this time around.
“Being pretty, or whatever Amy was from the right angle, had always struck her as overrated: an invitation to a lame party you never wanted to go to in the first place but somehow didn’t quite want to leave once you got there.” Chapter 2
“…she realized that the pet food store was right next to the nice wine shop and it would be silly if she didn’t take the opportunity to go in and get a bottle of something. The cute label that leaped out at her was on a nineteen-dollar bottle, a little bit more than she usually liked to spend, but it had been a hard day and she deserved a treat.” Chapter 5
“… they were allies in a world full of idiots and enemies.” Chapter 7
” Well we’re still relatively young, you know? I’m sure all kinds of unimaginable things will happen.” Chapter 8
“How powerless the trees were! They got to make only one decision, and then they had to reap its consequences for their entire lives. On the plus side, though, they were relieved of the burden of having to make any further decisions. There was that to be said for being a tree.” Chapter 9
1. How are Bev and Amy different personality-wise? We know they could both stand to do some maturing, but analyze their immaturity and actions. How is their shallowness different?
2. Amy and Bev are very different. What do you think keeps their friendship alive?
3. Do Sam and Amy love each other or are they just comfortable? Try to explain their relationship.
4. It seems like Bev and Steve get along pretty well on their date. Do you think anything will come of this relationship? (Don’t spoil if you’ve read ahead!)
