Essay Topic 1
The action at the end of Chapter 40 builds to the novel's climax of the explosive revelation that Zach is the son of a powerful agent of the Circle. This is why he is never hurt while defending Cammie from the Circle since his mother's affection for him proves valuable for both Zach and Cammie but, on the other hand, also raises a logic question. If she is so apparently determined to save her son's life no matter what, how can she possibly be viewed as a valuable agent by the Circle if she's got such an obvious and therefore exploitable, vulnerability?
1. How do you think the author might be able to explain the problem of Zach's mother being a powerful Circle agent, and yet has a son through whom she might be able to be blackmailed or controlled? Do you think this is a flaw in the plotting? Why or why not? Use examples from Only the Good Spy Young and your own life to support your answer.
There is collision between Cammie's spy side and her teen girl side. While this and the other collisions, in the narrative, between these two sides of Cammie's personality can seem jarring, it may also be that they are intended to be perceived as manifestations of the narrative's thematic interest in identity - specifically, how the same person can have two such apparently contradictory sides to his/her personality at the same time.
2. Discuss the two sides to Cammie's personality and which you think is the strongest. Do you think everyone has more than one strong personality trait? Why or why not? Use examples from Only the Good Spy Young and your own life to support your answer.
