Chapter Three discussion
In her first conversation with Tanya, Parker reveals that she was “angry” at sixteen years old. Why do you think Parker might have been angry at sixteen? What sort of things do you imagine her doing to express her anger? Does it seem to contrast at all from the way Parker seems now, as an older version of herself? Can you relate at all to her in this feeling?
More “Food for Thought”: Age appears in a few scenes as a prominent theme. In what instances does Parker seem uncomfortable with age? In what instances does she seem to have ignored age – her own age and the age of others — altogether? Why might Parker be reluctant to acknowledge age or uneasy of age – of those around her and of herself?
