Section 19


1. Between pp. 465-467 Willow describes the delivery from the nursery. She says that this is not the "regular nursery van that arrives". What makes this delivery different from others that she has had from Henry.


2. Make a list of all of the plants that Willow has described to us (she has described them in detail). Sketch a picture of what you imagine the garden will look like once the plants are in the ground. Label each of the specific plants that she has told us about and don't forget to include the sunflowers that they started with.


3. On page 467, Willow cannot speak. Henry says, "You're welcome." Why does he say this and what is this scene in the story telling us?


4. Who is Lorenzo and what is the "favor bank"?


5. Why does Dell put the "Building Rep" sign back up in the best parking space?


6. Chapter 54: What came in the mail? How does each person react?


7. Explain Dell's behavior in chapter 55.


8. Chapter 56: What does Dell do in the middle of the night and why does he do it?


9. Chapter 57: Willow says, "When you care about other people, it takes the spotlight off your own drama." What does she mean by this?


10. Make a prediction as to what will happen next.


11. Create a graphic organizer (a web?) which illustrates all of the characters and their relationships to one and other.
