This book moves quickly and holds student interest. There are many complex concepts, and many readers may not have any prior knowledge about them, but Ling's story is told in an accessible way. The threats are disturbing, but the book avoids graphic depictions or extreme incidents.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
