Questions with Authors Comments and Insights

 
In Chapter 6, where does the granola bar come from that Alyssa finds?
Liz imagined that she gave it to Grace, but she just left it on the floor of the bedroom.
 
Is there anything in the story that gives you a hint that Grace isn’t real?
It’s pretty subtle, but nobody but Liz ever interacts with her.  When Liz interacts, Grace never actually does anything.  Liz just sees her doing things.  The narrator never says that Grace does something.  It’s always through Liz .  For example, Liz bent down to hug and kiss her, but she didn’t bend down and hug and kiss her.  It’s always her intent or what she saw but not what actually happened. 
 
In Chapter 7, Liz reflects on the teaching position that she didn’t get.  What part of this wasn’t true?  She didn’t have Grace to help her through the disappointment.  The loss of Grace was the reason that the disappointment was so bitter.



Start reading Chapters 8 and 9!
