This is a freebie from my original novel, Purple Storm. It includes the prologue and first chapter of the novel, along with questions (open-response and discussion) and vocabulary. It is great for exploring figurative language, characterization, dialogue, and various plot elements. The novel itself is targeted at students 13-17, but this particular chapter would be appropriate for students aged 11-12 as well. Just be aware that if they get hooked on the story, you may have some issues continuing the story. See the links below for more information on the novel contents.
If you and your students get hooked, you can purchase the entire novel and full unit.
