Discussion Questions

The writer painfully shares her story of sleeping with a lot of guys to find the love she was missing when her father left her at age 12. Many girls experience what the writer has gone through.

Have your group quietly read the story, then ask them:
• Why did she sleep with a lot of guys?
• How did this make her feel?
• How did she finally realize what she was doing to herself?
• What did she do then?
• Do you know someone in the writer’s shoes?
• How can you help?
