1. Should Janie's parents have told her about what they know concerning her identity? Why or why not?

2. Make a list in order of their importance, not necessarily their order of appearance in the novel, of the crucial discoveries that inform Janie about her identity.

Defend your ordering of these events. 3. Should Janie and Reeve have taken advantage of the motel room? How would you react in a similar situation? What would be your parents' reaction?

4. What do you make of Hannah's character? Is she aware of the magnitude of her actions? Is she a sinister character or a "rag doll"? Explain the significance of this last term as it appears in the novel.
