Since this is the only book I managed to finish in time, I'll start off a discussion. I will, again, offer a bookmark to a randomly chosen participant of the discussion.

1) Prejudice played a large role in the story. Do you feel that there were any characters who did not show prejudice? How did prejudice affect the outcome of the story?

2) The characters often lingered on the negative aspects of their lives. Do you think this is an accurate portrayal of the way we think?

3) Did forgiveness play an important role in the story?

M.L. I'll take a try at the first question, who was not prejudiced?
Barry Fairbrother of course...and I think Sukhvinder and her father. Patricia, Howard's daughter, and maybe Gaea (?). Those are the ones I remember off the top. Barry's children (these last are minor characters).

Well, I am officially closing this discussion. Kinda sad...

M.L. There have to be other readers that read it! Oh, well :) They're all so cute! I'm trying to decide between the cat and owl...hmm...

I can clear that one up. Sorry, should have mentioned the cat's not one of the prizes. Sorry! But you could have one similar. My son made that one, and I'm sure he would be happy to make another one for you. :)
