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 week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

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. 

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book


Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…

The Winner's Crime ( Marie Rutkoski)

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.
