The House on the Gulf: Discussion Guide

Questions that can be used in classrooms and book group

  • How did this book turn out differently than you expected?

  • What would you do if you were Britt, after she found out what her brother was doing?

  • The title of this book refers to the fact that the house in Florida is located on the Gulf of Mexico. But there is also a gulf between Britt’s mother and her grandparents. And there’s a gulf between what Britt thinks is going on, and what’s really happening. Can you explain that gulf?
