1. So after this week’s reading we are about halfway through the book. We are learning a little more about the other girls at Spence as well as the staff. What do you think of Miss Moore? Having read this book before, I don’t feel I can comment without giving away spoilers, but I’d love to hear what the rest of you think.
2. Gemma has now made friends with Felicity, Pippa, and Ann. As we learn more about them we are beginning to see that they each have things about which they are sensitive: Ann’s position among the other girls, Pippa’s epilepsy, Gemma’s mother’s suicide, and Felicity’s mother’s neglect of her. What role do you think these play in the girl’s friendship? Or is it too early to tell whether their friendship is a true friendship?
3. Any thoughts on Kartik?
4. Who do you think is the little girl that Gemma sees in her visions?
5. Even though the book is set during the Victorian time perio,do you think the girls at Spence are all that different from young teen girls today?
I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the book. For next week lets read through the end of Chapter 26.
