  5. Hi Kya, In chapter two, tonight's reading assignment, Bindy describes what happened to her parents. Jack says she's a liar, so I'm not sure if she's telling the truth or not. Bindy is big for her age and seems to have an issue with food--she wants to keep eating. I wonder why that's true. What do you think? I don't know why Bindy lies, what do you think?

    Aarushi, those are good questions. I'm wondering about those questions too. I wonder what questions the other students will ask.

    How is that old man?

    Why didn't Bindy want to stay with her Aunt?


  14. Great questions, Laura. I think it's interesting that you and others are asking about "that man." This shows that you are reading this book like a good detective and that you're understanding how one reads a mystery--always looking for clues and wondering about the introduction of new characters and settings. Great job!

  15. Is Bindy telling the truth.

    Why would Bindy go in the no passing zone.

    Why did Bindy and Cole be mean to each other.

    Did Bindy get kidnapped?

    Will they find Bindy?

  22. Who is the weirdo?
    Where did Bindy go?
    What happened to Cole?

  23. Terrific questions, team 15. I like the way Mr. Dunlea connected two parts of the story--the preface and the later details about the man in the pier. I also like the way Mr. Dunlea used quotes in his questions. I wonder if others will try this in future comments.

  24. Hi Ms. Devlin I am answering Kya's question. Yes Bindy is fat because in the book it said " I hated Cole on sight, and he hated me, too. So…I ate. And the more I ate, the more upset Aunt Marian got. Twice she dragged me back to Hollywood to get me into another movie, but the casting director took one look at me and said no film needed a prepubescent girl with weight issues." Hope this answers your question. ~ TAMIRA

    Hi Tamira, I just read your awesome post! I love the way you answered Kya's question with a specific quote from the text. Now the question is why is Bindy eating so much, what's causing this? Thanks for your fine work.

  25. Why did bindy run away?

    Why did her and cole have a bad relationship?

    who was the man on the pier?
