STEALing Kayla (JF): How does the author use indirect characterization to show us Kayla’s personality? (The author probably shows us using so some STEAL clues!)

Hooking with Power (JF): How does the author hook the reader? (Hint: Decide what kind of narrative hook the writer uses and justify your choice with evidence from the text!)

Sympathizing with Kayla (JF): How does the author make Kayla sympathetic? (Is she mostly someone you relate with or mostly someone you admire or is she something else?)
