ABOUT THE BOOK
THE DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
Al experienced the death of her father at a time in her life when one stereotypically feels invincible. How does this chasm between death and grief and youth and having one’s whole life ahead manifest for Al in the wake of her dad’s passing?
Al has her family—well meaning, if sometimes intrusive while she and her mother struggle—and her “found family” of friends from theater school. What different roles do they take?
Al has made her career on the stage—but in the book, she finds herself playing a role she never auditioned for. Almost watching real life like it’s a theater piece she can’t get out of. How does the concept of theater and stage interweave itself throughout the narrative?
