"The Turnaway Girls" by Haley Chewins
Chapters 1-10

The Turnaway Girls
 
Wow! I am already really enjoying this book. I hope you are, too. I can't wait to see what will happen next!
 
- The writing style is a little different than our other Family Book Club picks. The descriptions are very interesting. I like it because it helps me imagine what's happening better. For example, "I struggle against a wall of wind." That sounds way better than "the wind was strong", doesn't it? What do you think?
- Why does Mother Nine take all the babies' voices away? Why does she hurt Delphernia?
- Can you imagine living inside for your entire life? What would it be like to come outside for the first time in 12 years? 
- What do you think Bly, Delphernia, and Linna Lundd have in common?
- What do you think of this story so far? What do you think will happen next?

Leave your thoughts in the comments below! Next week we'll discuss chapters 11 - 21.
