After all the lessons and social commentary throughout the book, the author finishes with the most hopeful one of all: the fact that there are possibilities for new beginnings.

Essay Topic 2

Since their mother's death, Joyce and Ava refer to suicide as a "tumble" because that's how a pamphlet on grief had described it, making the point that anytime there is danger of a person going over an emotional edge, any source of comfort is justified.

1. What do you think is meant by this statement? Use examples from the text and your own life to support your answer.

2. The word "tumble" here implies something that happens quickly. Do you think a person falls into despair or depression quickly? Why or why not?

3. Ava and Joyce using the word tumble to describe their mother's emotions that led to suicide seems flippant. Do you agree? Why or why not? Why do you think they refer to the incident like this?

Essay Topic 3

Being diagnosed HIV positive has hastened Ava's enlightenment and sense of urgency to make the most of her life, and this comes through in the tone and style created by the author.

1. What do you think is meant by this statement? Use examples from the book to support your answer.

2. What would you do if you were in Ava's situation? Use examples from the book and your life to illustrate your answer.

3. Do you think a diagnosis like Ava's is the only way people can learn to live witha sense of urgency? Why or why not?
