Final Week of Paco’s Story Readalong

Welcome to the final week of the  Paco’s Story read-a-long.

We hope everyone has had a chance to read Chapters 6 and7. Here are some questions for discussion:

1.  What is the significance of the rape scene?  How does it change your opinion of Paco?

2.  Cathy’s diary plays an integral role in Paco’s final decision.  Why do you think it has such a drastic impact?

3.  What are some of the similarities between Vietnam and Boone, Texas?  Differences?

4.  Were you satisfied with the ending?  What are your overall impressions of the book?

Please share with everyone you first impressions, thoughts, and your own discussion questions in the comments or on your blog. Sign into Mr. Linky if you blog about the chapters with the full link to your post.  Also add your links for full reviews.
