This is one of my favorite novels to read with middle school students. It has a powerful story while also being a lighthearted and engaging read. It is one of the few novels that all students seem to enjoy. This resources contains deeper thinking questions for the novel that encourages students to work respond beyond the recall of the text. This resource is great to use in conjunction with the accompanying chapter questions and vocabulary activities. There are also modified chapter questions available for students on adapted or modified learning plans.
