"The Turnaway Girls" by Hayley Chewins
Chapters 23 - 31

The Turnaway Girls

- Linna wants everyone to be able to choose what they want to do (make shimmer, music, etc.). How do you feel about Blightsend being so controlling with everyone having one role assigned to them and no freedom to change it?

- The birds represent freedom. When Delphernia sings, she creates golden birds. What does Bly say they really are?

- What has Bly made and how can Delphernia's birds help him?

- Mother Nine has found Delphernia. Why do you think she has come out of the cloister?

- We are nearing the end of the book! What do you think will happen?
