1.Why would people choose to live in a village like Clifton?
2. What did you think of the adults not telling the children of Clifton the truth about their lives? How would you feel if you'd been tricked all your life about the time period you were living in and about people watching you?
3.Do you think you could have done what Jesse did to save her family and friends?
4.Was the story believable?
5.What do you think will happen to Jessie's family after the story ends?
6.If Jessie moved next door to you, what would you do to introduce her to the 21st century?
7.Describe Jessie. Would you like her for a friend?
8.Would you like to experience life in an earlier era? Why or why not? What features of modern life would you miss? Are there any things about today's world you wouldn't miss?
9.How would this story be different if Jessie was trying to escape in 2010 (or later) instead of 1996? Easier? Harder? The same?
10.What was your favorite part of the story?
