The Girl

  • Everyone has a name, or so we think. Why do you believe the author did not name the narrator? Is the narrator a boy or girl? Use specific quotes from the book to support your answer.
  • How old is the narrator? How old are you? List at least three adjectives to describe the narrator. Compare and contrast the narrator to your personality. What do you think is the biggest difference? Are you similar to the narrator in any way?
  • Describe the narrator's neighbors? What is their favorite sport that the narrator despises? Why does the narrator dislike the neighbor's sport? Does she express her dissatisfaction to the neighbors? Have you ever had a strong conviction about something that you shared with a family member, friend, or classmate? If so, what was it? If not, discuss a character in a movie, television show, or book who has.
