Explain how the characters are responding/adapting to the central conflict in the text.: The characters have gotten use to the way things run now and it gets annoying sometimes but there's really nothing they can do about it.
What does the text have to do with you, personally and with your life (past, present or future)? The end of chapter 16 made my mouth drop because of the Dad but I wasn't as shocked because i've been through the same thing and I was the one that caught him in the act also.
How well did you enjoy the text (or not) as entertainment or as a work of art? The characters in The Age Of Miracles are just like people I know and I can see their face as I read the book.
If you were in a similar conflict as the characters in the text, how would you react? What would you do differently? What would you do the same? I would just act like them, there is nothing you can do, you have to let Earth do it's thing. I would wake up, go to school, come back home, eat, sleep, and start all over again the next day.
How did you learn, and how much were your views and opinions challenged or changed by this text, if at all? I know now not the trust the father and the piano teacher, the mother was just getting into a good mood, and Julia is still Julia.
What was your overall reaction to the text? I thought it was good and I can't wait to read more.
