I've talked about this before - I wrote an ending for this book that not everyone is going to like. Of course, we can't please everyone, no matter how hard we try, but some endings are a bit more, um, controversial than others. Whenever I'm unhappy with an ending for a book I'm reading, I try to remember that the author probably had good reasons for doing what she did. That was certainly the case for me and this book. I'm not going to say anymore, because I don't want to give anything away.
The upside to having an ending some people are going to love and some people are going to hate is there are some great things to tackle as far as a discussion in a book club or classroom.
I mean, come on, don't you love a great discussion? Like - is that really possible? And sit back and listen to the opinions roll in. So great, I think.
To help with that discussion, I've prepared a guide that is FREE for anyone who'd like one.
As with my other reading/discussion guides, all you have to do is drop me a note at lisaschroederbooks(at)gmail(dot)com and let me know you'd like a copy and I'll send it to you via email.
I'm also happy to send along bookmarks for any book club or teacher/librarian who would like some. Just let me know!
