1.At the beginning of the story, Miranda says "It's all still there like a movie I can watch whenever I want to. Which is never." Why doesn't she want to think about this any more?
2.How does Miranda and Sal's relationship change during the course of the story? Is that a good thing?
3.At what point did you realize the laughing man was Marcus?
4.Have you ever had an experience when you felt "the veil was pushed away for a few moments" and you could "see the world as it really is?"
5.What is this book about?
6.Who was your favorite character?
7.Do you think this book deserved to win the Newbery Medal for being a "distinguished children's book?" Why or why not? How does it compare to some other Newbery winners you've read?
8.Miranda talks about the story of her name. What's the story of YOUR name?
9.Why do Anne Marie, Colin, and Amanda keep working at Jimmy's even though he doesn't pay them?
10.Were you satisfied with the way all mysteries came together in the end?
11.Did reading this book make you want to read or re-read A Wrinkle in Time?
12.A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle had a big impact on Miranda and she wanted to read and re-read that book. Is there a book in your life that has had a similar impact on you?
