Essay Topic 1

Conley spends much time describing the Love In Action handbook. Write an essay describing the contents of this handbook, as well as Conley's reaction to these contents. Identify the handbook's major tenets or guiding principles, and try to determine Conleys' reactions to each. You might also consider whether Conley's reactions change over time. Use evidence based on the text.

Essay Topic 2

Conley's memoir is structured in a very unique way. His flashbacks and his two-week experience at Love In Action's "The Source" program dovetail until he walks out of the program. Write an essay in which you explain how this structure contributes to the writer's story. How does it help the reader understand Conley's healing process? Could Conley have used a different structure? You may comment on how the structure contributed to your reading experience, but use evidence from the text to support your opinion.
