You make the decision! This novel is written around the infamous quote: “everybody is smart in different ways. But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid.” Do you see them as “your children” before you see them as “your students?” Do you foster the importance of standing out rather than fitting in or just satisfying the status quo? How do you think these students “find their grit” to face challenges such as the ones Ally did? Ponder and reflect as you read ahead…
