What an enjoyable evening we had tonight at the "Smith Estate"!! Seriously it was a beautiful evening at a beautiful place and the discussion of a precious story (to quote our hostess!) was so good! Thank you, Jamie (our founder) for suggesting this book! Thank you LBCLBC Ladies!!! Believe it or not we have one more meeting and this year comes to an end! See you next month!

Were you immediately engaged in this book or did it take you awhile to get into it? Why?
This book is considered Young Adult Fiction, is that how you would classify it? Why or why not?
Wreath assumed because Law was well-dressed and handsome that he was rich. Have you ever assumed someone is a certain way because of the way they look? Not a good way to judge people, agree?
Were there other things the author was trying to teach? What do you think was the main lesson in the book?
Could you relate to Wreath's "running away"? If so, how?
What qualities in Wreath did you most respect?
Which character helped Wreath the most? Her mom, Faye, Law, Clarice.......??
What was your favorite event in the book? Why?
Were there surprises in the book for you, or was it totally predictable?
Do you want to read all the books in this series?
