1. Where is Arvin joining his father?
Young Arvin joins his father Willard at his regular evening prayer, both seated on an oak log in a clearing in the woods.
2. What would keep Willard from coming out to the prayer clearing and what does Arvin think of either activity?
The only thing that keeps Willard from coming out and praying is if he has gotten drunk. Arvin is not sure which is worse--his father being drunk or having to come out and pray with him.
3. How long have the Russells lived in Mitchell Flats and how does that affect the townpeople's attitude towards them and Arvin's time at school?
The Russells have lived in Mitchell Flats for five years, but the town's people still consider them outsiders as everyone is related to each other some way or another. Arvin is harassed at school as an outsider and is often physically beat up.
