Masquerade Read Along: Chapters 16-24Chapters 16-245 Discussion Questions1. Heven’s mother has definite ideas about Heven and her scars – what they mean – and their relationship is strained. Do you think their relationship can be saved?
I'm not sure, Heven's mom is a bit ridiculous and I can't believe she thinks her daughter is evil. Her mom needs to be willing to listen but instead she is stubborn and harsh. I think it is good Heven can go to her grandmother's house to get away. Maybe spending some time apart will give them time to work thought things. 2. Sam tells Heven about how he came to be living on his own, how his parents kicked him out after he became what he is. He doesn’t seem angry though, he seems to accept it. Would you be angry? Do you think he should be?
I think it is good that Sam isn't angry anymore. I would be extremely angry and probably hold that anger. That isn't a good thing but it is something I tend to do. Anger is tiring and after a certain amount of time you should just let it go because its wasting your time and energy. I'll be the first to say this is easier said than done, that is why I admire that sam has accepted it and moved on. 3. During these chapters, Heven and Sam visit the Inbetween and meet Airis (aka The Hope). Were you surprised by this series of events? Do you think a place like the InBetween really exists?
I was surprised that Heven died but of course she had to come back to life. I'm not sure what I believe about death and heaven and InBetween places. I guess to me the InBetween place could be when you are close to death or giving up the fight, I'm not sure about after you already die especially being able to bring someone back to life unless its by the hands of medics using measures like the paddles, so in that case I suppose they are technically dead and could be in that InBetween place. I really have no idea :-p 4. When Heven’s scars are no longer a part of her and she says “she no longer recognizes herself” – do you think that the absence of her scar will change her once more?
I don't think she will ever go back to how she was before but I think things might change for her as she gets used to not having the scar anymore. 5. Gran is very accepting of Heven and of Sam. Do you think that she understands more – knows more than she lets on about Heven’s life or do you think her love is just unconditional?I never thought about Gran possibly knowing about Heven's destiny, so I had just assumed she just loved her unconditionally. Seeing that question I think it could be a possibility she knows more than she lets on. I'm really not sure and on the edge now that I read this question and have that idea in my head. Either way I think Gran is a loving person.
