I read this novel with one of my small groups for the first time this year:
As I previously stated, I was really impressed with how well my students handled the complexity of the characters. I really enjoyed the story and I'm glad my students did as well!
They are just finishing the first novel, so I read the second ahead of them so I'd be prepared for our discussions.
My teacher guide is available here on TpT and a bundle guide of both novels will be available soon!
I was pleased with the ending of both books, but then discovered this:
Ah yes, a third book! Time to write a grant proposal :)
