message 1: by Cait (new)

Cait K (medlibcait) | 99 comments How does Alma’s lingering guilt about Maribel’s accident affect her choices and interactions when she’s in America? Do you think that she still feels this way by the end of the book?

Elizabeth Bilyk | 12 comments Alma's guilt definitely contributes to what she wants to withhold from her husband. I think at the end she probably feels more guilt about not telling him about Maribel's encounter with that boy because it is eventually what gets her husband killed and drives them back to Mexico.

Cait K (medlibcait) | 99 comments Her guilt definitely does make her withhold some (disastrous) information from her husband. This part really reminded me of Everything I Never Told You, and how a lot of what those characters withheld from one another was because of guilt or shame, same as Alma - something I didn't originally think of when reading Everything I Never Told You!
