Essay Topic 1

The next morning, a note from Uncle Haskell has been slid under Julie's door and she is somewhat relieved, when she reads his words, "I'll say to my sad-faced little Julie: Guilt feelings will do nothing for either you or the Kilpin child. But your compassion as you grow into womanhood may well become immortality for the girl you call Aggie."

1. What do you think Uncle Haskell meant by his statement?

2. Do you think Julie, at the age she was when she received her Uncle's note could understand the full meaning of it? Why or why not?

3. How do you think Aggie's death will change Julie?

Essay Topic 2

The author uses personification in this chapter, when she gives human characteristics to inanimate objects.

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

2. Write a brief description of your bedroom using personification.

3. Why do you think an author uses personification? Do you think it is an effective method of description?

Essay Topic 3

Carlotta thinks that Julie's decision to live at Aunt Cordelia's house during her high school years is a sign of madness, because no boy will want to drive out to the country to pick up Julie for dates. If the distance from town were not enough of a deterrent, surely no boy would want to encounter Aunt Cordelia if he did not have to.

1. Do you that Carlotta is correct? Why or why not?

2. Do you think Julie should make a decision as to where to live based on whether she will find boys to date? Why or why not?

3. Explain what you would do in Julie's situation.
