Over the next few weeks, we will build up these mind maps with quotations and examples from the book. Discuss what we have found out about Sol from the first paragraph.

Relate this back to what you predicted or expected the novel to be about.

What would you expect a father-son relationship to consist of?

What words or phrases can we identify from Chapter Two which create an image of this relationship? What do you know already about dyslexia?

On your whiteboards, write down what you think dyslexia is.

Look at these celebrities...
Think about what they have achieved in their lives... How does the author convey to us how Sol is feeling at this point in the story?

Pull out some key quotes from the text.
