Woo! We're one week down! How did everyone's reading go? Everyone finished their goal for last week, right?
So what are everyone's thoughts on the chapters? Honestly, I'm enjoying it so far. I'm super curious to see how things are going to turn out for Al and Jeb.
We're introduced to Alyssa who can hear bugs and flowers talk. Her mother is sentenced to life in an asylum, and Alyssa spends her time either skating, pinning bugs into works of art, or trying to convince herself that she's not crazy, like her mother and her grandmother and her great grandmother and so on. Her great-great-great grandmother is Alice Liddell, the Alice in Wonderland.
We're introduced to Alyssa's best friend Jeb and Jenara, who are brother and sister and Alyssa's neighbors. And there's possibly something going on between Alyssa and Jeb, I'm certain. Oh, yes....
Things happen, but it's a little complicated for me to explain here, but both Jeb and Alyssa end up going down the rabbit hole and come across Rabid White and fight off these zombie flowers. And that's where chapter seven left us!
And here are some questions to think of:
- Why do you think that Alison, Alyssa's mother, is keeping up that act at the asylum?
- What do you think of Jeb so far? Do we ship him with Alyssa?
- Why do you think Alyssa calls her mother Alison instead of Mom?
- Do you think that this skater punk style that Alyssa has going on is the real her or is it part of her act to not be like her mother?
