We had some great discussions about these questions and agreed that Ally already feels that Mr. Daniels may like her. She wants to be sure that whatever she does keeps it that way, so she struggles with whether to tell him how hard reading and writing are for her. We identified this as a “Tough Question” reading signpost. When a character struggles with a very difficult question, we have learned to stop and ask ourselves, “What does this question make me wonder about?” The answers will tell you about the conflict or maybe what will happen later in the story.
