These questions are meant to accompany the novel Push by Sapphire. The novel contains highly graphic content and I would not recommend it for conservative teachers or schools. However, it does have great appeal in the inner city classrooms where I taught and was an approved book for literature circles there. The questions are accompanied by the page number where the answers can be found because they are mostly higher order thinking questions and the answers are not obvious. I recommend that students work in groups to come up with the answers together and avoid the tendency toward frustration that comes when the answer is not immediately apparent to a student on their own.
