From chapter 8, when Mr. Daniels is asking Ally about her assignment and asks her if she doesn’t like writing… “I think about saying no, except it could cause me trouble later. Like the chess games in Grandpa’s Alice in Wonderland book. You have to be super sure before you make a move final.” She compares her thinking to a chess game. She always has to know her moves ahead of time. Why do you think Ally thinks like this? How does this make you feel?
Why do you think Ally was afraid to show her penny to the class?
