Flippedby Wendelin Van Draanen
Reading Group Guide
Written in a humorous and light style with chapters switching between the two main characters' points of view, this story will grab the reader and keep them turning the pages right to the very end. Although love plays its part in Flipped, the book is filled with twists and turns and is not a typical summer romance novel.
Things to think about and discuss:
2. Juli decides to stay up in the sycamore tree when the men come to cut it down. Discuss a time when you stood up for something you believed in.
3. Bryce's grandfather, Chet, helps Juli with her yard work and soon becomes her friend. Why do you think they are able to form such a strong friendship? Why doesn't Bryce have the same kind of relationship with his grandfather?
4. Juli's dad has been taking care of Uncle David since before Juli was born. Paying for the care facility where Uncle David lives is a financial burden for Juli's family, yet her father continues to keep him at Greenhaven. Think about what this decision tells us about Juli's father's personality. Do you think Bryce's father would act the same way?
5. Bryce hides the newspaper article that his grandfather tells him to read about Juli and the sycamore tree. Later, when Bryce finally decides to look at the article, he sees Juli in a new light and hides the article for a different reason. What do you think happens to Bryce when he reads the article that makes him feel so differently about Juli?
