The Lost Girl read-along: Week 4

 This week we are reading pages 164-220. That's chapters 7-9 of part 2 in The Lost Girl. If you missed out on last week's discussion, you can view it HERE.


As you read this week, think about this question: How do Alisha, Neil, Nikhil, and Sasha each respond to Eva? Why does Neil-- and later, the rest of the family-- choose to call Eva by her real name?
 


For week 5, we will be finishing part 2 in The Lost Girl. I will post the discussion questions next Sunday, so check back then to post! Remember, you get 2 entries in the giveaway for every comment you leave on the blog, plus an additional 1 entry for posting on the Facebook page (LINK HERE). So don't be shy! It doesn't matter when you post either, just as long as it's before we finish the book.

Happy reading!

  1. I have to say that I love the innocence and acceptance that Sasha represents. I also appreciate Nikhil's honesty about the situation. He knows Eva is not Amarra and he doesn't treat her as an Echo. He sees Eva as Eva. Alisha and Neil are a little tricky, though. I understand Alisha's treatment of Eva as still being Amarra because she is holding on to that hope we discussed previously. Neil, however, is a mystery. He knows Eva is not Amarra and he seems to tolerate her more than accept her. Of course, that's for his wife. If it were just Neil without the others, I can't help but wonder how he would treat Eva.

  2. I agree with you about how they each respond to Eva in their own way. I suspect that Neil's somewhat cold approach to the situation may have more to do with the past and how Eva came to be than who she is to the family now. As the story unfolds, perhaps more light will be shed as to the relationship to the Weavers which has been implied.
    I think they choose to call her Eva because they realize she is not and never will be Amarra, regardless of how much they wish it to be so. Calling her Eva seems to be a first step in accepting their grief and moving on from the tragedy of losing their daughter and sister. It also is acknowledging that they see Eva as more than an echo, and, in fact, an individual.

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
