Question 9: Campbell and Lena don‘t really know each other when they wind up huddled together in the concession stand. Explain what Campbell means when she says, “With only me and Lena left, this shelter feels less like a fortress and more like a cage.” What is the difference between fortress and a cage? How do both girls begin to panic?

JoyBlue A fortress protects; a cage imprisons. 5d
ElizaMarie @JoyBlue Of course! I think because the girls weren't friends going on they didn't see it as a fortress. A fortress to me is like “me and my bestie:“ running the show. Kind of thing. I mean.... But Also because they felt they didn't have anything in comment it probably felt very stifling and cage-like. 5d

CrowCAH @JoyBlue I like it, short and to the point. 5d
CrowCAH @ElizaMarie it would be tough trusting someone whom one has never interacted with before. 5d
megnews “Less like a fortress.” I think this means it felt more like a fortress before. Even with the kid just sitting on the floor, she felt more protected than with Lena. Afterward, a cage. Could it be she now felt she was caged in with the enemy? Considering she knew this riot started with racial slurs and tensions, neither girl could know the others‘ thoughts. Perhaps she wondered if the fight had come to her. 4d

Question 8: what precipitates the fight in the first place? Campbell has never seen a fight; what was her reaction? Contrast Lena and Campbell‘s view of the cops.

marleed As these questions are presented, I realize that I don‘t read for the secondary details of a story these days - maybe I should work on that. But Lena and Campbell‘s perspective of police entering a brouhaha is key to the discussion of a YA story - so important to understand that my history is not your history as we move through a shared traumatic event. 6d
CrowCAH @marleed lol I agree; I read for the enjoyment of a book, not necessarily for discussion. 6d
marleed @CrowCAH The questions have been interesting to me because I honestly didn‘t realize how I let those details go. It reminded me of when my kids went through this Accelerated Reader (AR) program in grades 3-8. It was great for my daughter because she read for details. My son read (and enjoyed) for the overall picture. AR scarred his reading for life, I swear, convincing him he was a below average reader. 6d
megnews Racial slurs precipitates the fight. Campbell is shocked by the fight. She views the police as protection as white children are trained to do and expect. Lena views them with suspicion and rightfully assumes their arrival means things are about to get worse. 4d

Question 7: Johnsville is McPherson‘s biggest football rival, but the problem between the two schools runs deeper then a simple rivalry. There was extra security. Why is it not enough? Discuss how school officials could have done to prepare for possible violence at the game. How might each school address the student body on the following Monday?

megnews I live in a small diverse, college town in a rural area surrounded by schools with no exposure to African-American kids. There are 3 school football teams that come play our high school team that throw racial slurs. There have been brawls that shut the games down after they‘ve thrown these on the field. Our school prepares the kids and maintains the no fighting stance. I have no idea if the other schools prepare the kids not to be racist or ⬇️ 4d
megnews reprimand the perpetrators. I‘ve always felt they should suspend the person(s) who used offensive language the rest of the season. These kids and parents are serious about their kids‘ football scholarships. That would shut this crap down. Either that or eject the whole team. So this novel is pretty much real life in some places. 4d
CrowCAH @megnews wow I had no idea. I live in a diverse area, but never attended the football games. 3d

Question 6: discuss Lena‘s relationship with Black. He is older than she, how might he be out of Lena‘s league? Why is Marcus upset that she is trying to find Black during the riots? Does she end up seeing through Black‘s facade?

ElizaMarie Black is cool? I think she sees him as an older man who has a lot going for him (despite any evidence that this is actually true). She makes excuses for him all the time. And sure that night is chaotic but,. she starts to realize that a lot of what he has done in the past has been very selfish and not very boyfriend-like. I am happy to see that she starts to see him for who he is. Lena starts off with a rather low self esteem. 1w
ElizaMarie attaching herself to Black is an example of this. She doesn't think she deserves to be treated better. Makes excuses for his behavior and just allows him to treat her badly. She starts to gain sense of self while battling that night. Cambell also challenges her by making her see Black for who he is. 1w
CrowCAH @ElizaMarie it‘s important to see mistakes of the past and not to repeat them. 6d

I was able to listen to this #Audiobook for free via #Audible, because I met the female narrator, Anneliese Rennie, at the local #MittenLitten #RochesterWriters Conference last month. She had a wealth of knowledge about the craft of creating audiobooks and how the narrators put in six hours of prep work for each finished hour of the novel. She performed the female POV well, with distinct voices for each character.

LiteraryinLititz It‘s cool to hear about what goes into making an audiobook! Thanks for sharing! 1w

Question 5: LaShunda, Lena‘s best friend, displays a stronger sense of responsibility and better judgment. How does Lena need LaShunda when things get scary and tough?

ElizaMarie I think with any friendships we have, we see that we have different strengths. I think that friends tend to pick each other in ways that help each other. Its a check/balances thing but also a crutch. Because Lena isn't with her friend during this night and is with Cambell. I feel it helps her develop more as a person. She sees that she doesn't need LaShunda she is able to navigate with Cambell and these girls can support each other. 1w

Question 4: how is Pops, Lena‘s grandfather, a sting father figure? Why is he so strict with Lena? Explain how Marcus and others in the neighborhood work with Pops to keep Lena safe. How does she rebel; what‘s at the root of it?

megnews I think Pop‘s is strict because of the neighborhood. He‘s probably seen kids succumb to it. The neighbors check on Lena, ask questions, threaten to call her Pops to try to keep her in line. She rebels with the older boyfriend. She‘s trying to make her own choices and test the boundaries like most teenagers do. (edited) 1w
ElizaMarie Pops is a central father figure for not only Lena but it appears that he is the father of many of the kids in the neighborhood. I feel like because he is a “good man“ he is trying to make sure his “children“ do not gets sucked into the lifestyles that so many people without role models do. I think he is strict with Lena because he can see the potential. She is strong willed, but also very kind. This can lead her down the wrong path (with the boy) 1w
See All 6 Comments
ElizaMarie Lena rebeling I think is nothing more than teenager attitude. Teens think they are invincible and feel like their elders “don't understand“ the way the world is for them. She loves that boyfriend and sees the good in him whereas her family doesn't. I mean we have all been there, thinking we know more than people who have “been there“. Some mistakes we need to learn on our own. 1w

Question 3: Why is Campbell‘s father eager for her to work the concession stand at the football game? What does this say about their relationship and about Campbell‘s resentment about leaving her old school? She often experiences loneliness; is there hope at the end for a different life?

(Sorry posting this late today)

ElizaMarie I didn't really get that it was a good/bad thing that her dad wanted her to work concession. I mean maybe it was his attempt to get her to embrace the new school (like a way to have ownership in the area?) Or maybe teaching her about hard work? 2w
marleed @ElizaMarie Yeah, I don‘t have mycopy of the book anymore and thought - oh interesting I don‘t have a clue - that wasn‘t a moment I took from the book. I was thinking she volunteered because she was needed in a new situation and knew how to do it from previous experience. ...It is interesting - the things we take away from a story to retain the significance of it. 2w
See All 11 Comments
megnews This came across pretty straightforward to me. A parent trying to make sure his daughter gets involved in school activities to make friends. If he knew she did this when she lives with her mom, it‘s probably why he picked this particular thing. 2w
CrowCAH @ElizaMarie all plausible thoughts! 2w
CrowCAH @marleed I agree, different aspects of a book stand out to each person. 2w
CrowCAH @megnews it‘s also a low keyed way to meet people. 2w
ElizaMarie @megnews True. I think father felt as if his daughter made friends she might not feel so miserable about starting a new school? 2w
CogsOfEncouragement This did stand out to me because I was irritated with him. I do not think it was for Campbell‘s benefit. The father wanted to go fishing. That was his habit. He wanted to keep that habit. He wanted to feel less guilty about it. He left Campbell with five bucks and a flimsy way to get home. Irritating even if nothing had occurred to set off a riot. (edited) 7d
CrowCAH @ElizaMarie a solid recommendation. 6d

Question 2: how do Lena and Campbell have false views of the other? Why does Lena assume Campbell is rich? How does Campbell coming from a Pennsylvania school with few black students contribute to her ignorance about people of color?

ElizaMarie So I‘m still working on this one but... I assume she believed she was rich because she is a white girl. I grew up in a mostly Hispanic area where because I have a “white” last name.. people assumed I was a higher class 2w
marleed Misconceptions! Just tonight I was at a wedding reception and talking about an event with my son.... We sponsored a college student from Tokyo when my son was 3-7 yrs old. In 3rd grade he came home so confused because a new boy from Japan was in his class. He had blonde hair. A few weeks later this boy came for a play date - his parents had been stationed in Japan for 3 years! 2w
See All 6 Comments
CrowCAH @ElizaMarie that‘s interesting. Lots of factors go into first impressions, many of which can be incorrect. 2w
CrowCAH @marleed ah I see. Just because he was “from” Japan, doesn‘t mean he is Japanese. Good example. 2w
megnews I attended a pretty diverse high school. These types of stereotypes were tossed around a lot. If you grow up in a neighborhood you rarely leave to realize the vast differences between people despite their race and you do not have friends with a variety of backgrounds, it‘s fairly easy to ascribe to these beliefs. 2w

Question 1: discuss the structure of the novel, thoughts on the five parts, the two point of views, keeping in mind the whole novel takes place in one night.

megnews I always enjoy novels written from multiple points of view and this was no exception. I think it was especially important to tell this story well. 2w
marleed I too thought the two perspectives were were very meaningful for a book so valuable to YA discussion. Understanding how everyone has their own history which forces them to receive information uniquely, particularly in moments of trauma, is important. 2w
CrowCAH @marleed I agree, we all have our own histories that we filter information through. 2w

ElizaMarie I really enjoyed that we got to see both girls perspective of the exact same scene. It helps the reader see how different these girls are but also helps us see some of the similarities they have. I ended up listening to this on Audio which I think adds a special factor to it as well. We hear it more “in their own words“ 1w
CogsOfEncouragement I always enjoy books that give us multiple first person POV. Actions only mean so much, being allowed to understand motive tells so much more about the character. Being able to hear a character‘s thought about something she understands clearly, or completely misunderstands is also revealing. 7d

#SoaringScores

Comment below about your favorite movie or composer and why to be entered into the drawing for a score and book pairing.

Winner will be chosen end of day on Wednesday, 10/23.

lover.of.the.classics Can I do both? Favorite composer is probably Beethoven, not JUST because his symphonies are amazing but also because his life was quite inspiring! Favorite movie? 🤔 that one is kinda tough? One of my favorite movies is Walt Disney Pixar‘s The Incredibles, probably because the main character (aka Mr Incredible) reminds me a little bit of my Daddy.🥰 1mo
CrowCAH @lover.of.the.classics of course you can comment on both! Beethoven is amazing; especially for being partially deaf. I‘ve seen The Incredibles once and enjoyed it; super heros! You‘re entered in the drawing. 🥰 1mo
CrowCAH @lover.of.the.classics you were the only one brave enough to comment. Please, email me your shipping address to cynthiaannehurt at gmail dot com, and we‘ll discuss your favorite genres of books and what you like to listen to. Thank you! 😊 1mo
lover.of.the.classics @CrowCAH WOW!! Thanks bunches! 1mo

#SoaringScores #Partyman #Batman #DannyElfman #HansZimmer #JamesNewtonHoward

Depending on what era of Batman you‘ve watched, there are many composers; my favorite being Hans Zimmer.

I have a thing for ships of any kind: sailing vessels, aircraft, and even vehicles. Love me some Batmobile action!

Here‘s some Halloween decorations 🦇

RamsFan1963 @CrowCAH I'm thinking about buying this. Is it any good? Some Star Wars books have been hit or miss lately. 1mo
CrowCAH @RamsFan1963 this is more of a miss. Everything is working out to well, even though, there‘s conflict. It‘s not holding my attention to keep reading. I do highly recommend this book ➡️ 1mo
RamsFan1963 @CrowCAH Thanks for the heads-up, I'll check it out 1mo

For today‘s prompt I went with the “upstairs/downstairs” vibe and went with the Bennett‘s servants at Longbourn!

The Downtown Abbey movie was super nice, feel good, and had me tearing up at the end.

CoverToCoverGirl Loved this book. It has a permanent place in my library. 1mo
AlaMich @CoverToCoverGirl I loved Longbourn too. I read it even before I read P&P, so I had no background knowledge and I still loved it. 1mo
Cinfhen I‘ve seen wonderful reviews for this book! Good choice 1mo

Zelma I adored Longbourn, and would have even without the P&P tie-in. It worked so well for me. 1mo
CrowCAH @CoverToCoverGirl great to hear! On my TBR. 1mo
CrowCAH @AlaMich oh wow, interesting. Did it affect your reading of P&P? 1mo
CrowCAH @Cinfhen same here! 1mo
CrowCAH @Zelma good to know. Definitely will be a must read for this P&P/Jane Austen fan! 1mo
AlaMich @CrowCAH not really, because they were very much separate stories. 1mo
