I noticed that I had posted Chapter 18's questions before posting Chapters 15, 16 and 17. Therefore, I'm going to back up a bit. Here are the questions for Chapters 15 and 16, both talking about music:

Chapter 15 – Listen to “Hurt” by Johnny Cash at . Do you agree or disagree that it is “sooo mournful” and “let’s [listeners] release [their] grief in small, beautiful doses”? Do you think it is realistic that fans of Nine Inch Nails (who, incidentally, recorded “Hurt” before Cash) and Marilyn Manson could feel this way about a song recorded by Johnny Cash, mostly known for being a country and western singer?

Chapter 16 – Luke talks about dancing with his mother and says how “. . . the song . . . had somehow become her love for me.” What does this say about Luke’s relationship with his mother? Are you envious of Luke’s relationship with his mother?

Question for Chapter 18

This chapter's question is a two-part question:

1. Why do you think Luke purposely antagonized Mr. Tanner during their meeting?
2. What do you think of Mr. Tanner’s reaction to Luke’s behaviour in this meeting (have you ever had to deal with someone like Mr. Tanner)?
