1.Judith is going to live in a town called “Whispers.” What connotations does that give you about the place? What do you think the author is trying to tell you?
 
2.Judith’s uncle demands that she does not bring anything green to the house, but she does bring the green-framed picture of her mother, leaving all her other green belongings behind. Would you have complied completely, a little, or not at all with this demand?
 
3.Cousin Charles is not a pleasant character. Before we found out what he did to Jade Green, what clues do we have that he is creepy?
 
4.Cousin Charles makes Judith uncomfortable on several occasions with his snarky remarks. Have you ever been around someone who makes you feel that way?
 
5.Were you expecting it when the disembodied hand showed itself in the book? What did you think? Would you have looked under the bed to see if it was still there like Judith did?
 
6.Did this book freak you out? If it did, which part did it?
 
7.Do you think this book would make a good movie? Who would you pick to star in it? Who would play the part of the Uncle? Cousin Charles? Zeke?
 
8.When Violet tells Judith about her cousin being drunk outside the tavern (p 127) Judith says, “Every family has their problems,” but secretly wished he’d be run over by a carriage. Ever feel that way about someone?
 
9.Do you feel that Cousin Charles got his just rewards? Why or why not?
 
10.If you couldn't have anything green, what would you have to give up? What would you miss most?
 
11.What would you do if you found a hand on your bedroom floor?
 
12.Why doesn't Judith confide in Zeke about what's going on? Would you?
 
13.Did you like the ending? What do you think will become of everyone?
