1.Mitchell is just starting out at a new school and he wishes he could be back at his old school. Have you ever been “the new kid” at school? How did you feel?
2.Mitchell thinks the food at school is disgusting…the pizza tastes like cardboard and the cheese bread smells like plastic. Do you like the food at school? What is your favorite?
3.Mitchell’s t-shirt says #1, but he feels like a loser. Why do you think he feels that way?
4.How does Mitchell feel about his sister, Angel? Does he care for her? How can you tell?
5.Does your school have an afternoon program for kids? Do you attend? What kinds of things do you do?
6.All through the story Mitchell wonders if he will win a prize on prize day. He has never won a prize before and he hopes he can be good at something. Have you ever won a prize? For what? How did it make you feel?
7.How has Mitchell changed by the end of the story?
