I can hardly talk about Counting By 7s  by Holly Goldberg Sloan.  I read it in 2 days (didn't get much housework done).  I laughed. I cried. I kept turning pages until there were no more to turn.  The characters, especially Willow, are so well drawn.....  I promise you will not be disappointed. Now tell me what I should read next.

Jem says, “I think I’m beginning to understand something.  I think I’m beginning to understand why Boo Radley’s stayed shut up in the house all this time…  it’s because he wants to stay inside” (259).  What about the world would make Boo want to stay inside?  What connections are there between what Boo might be hiding from and what killed Tom Robinson? What is Scout learning because of this trial?  Although Atticus didn’t convince the jury to acquit Tom, is there evidence that anything is different because of Atticus’ defense of Tom Robinson?  Why didn’t they end up aquitting him?  Is there anything besides prejudice that factors in?

What message about the way the world works does Scout take away from the trial? What evidence is there that supports that Scout will not be prejudiced as an adult?  Is there any reason to doubt? Think about Mr. Cunningham's role in the story.  What kind of adult do you think his son Walter will become?  What about Burris Ewell?

Did Atticus do any good in taking the case to trial? After reading Mr. Underwood’s editorial, Scout realizes, “Atticus had used every tool available to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men’s hearts Atticus had no case.  Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed” (276).  Did Atticus really use every tool available?  Was there anything else that could have been done?  At one point after the trial, Scout is playing with a bug, but when she tries to smash it, Jem stops her.  From the text:  “Why couldn’t I mash him? I asked. “Because they don’t bother you,” Jem answered in the darkness.  (273).                 Where do you think Jem got his soft spot for the bugs?

At several points in the story, we see innocent people get punished for things that are perceived as crimes, but might actually be justified (i.e. Scout reading, Uncle Jack misunderstanding Scout’s fight with Cecil Jacobs, Tom Robinson).  Does this happen in real life?  Why is it easier to punish people like Scout and Tom Robinson, than the people who might actually be guilty like Bob Ewell or Cecil Jacobs?
