Interview, Excerpt


June Bug believed everything her daddy told her. That is, until she walked into Walmart and saw her face on a list of missing children. The discovery begins aa quest for the truth about her father, the mother he rarely speaks about, and ultimately herself. A modern interpretation of Les Miserables, the story follows a dilapidated RV rambling cross-country with June Bug and her father, a man running from a haunted past. Forces beyond their control draw them back to Dogwood, West Virginia, down a winding path that will change their lives forever.

1.     What is your first impression of the main character, June Bug?

3.     What parallels/similarities did you see between John and Jean Valjean of Les Misérables?

5.     Do you think June Bug will ever meet her biological mother?   Would you want her to?   Why or why not?

 

 

 

 

6.     Describe Mae’s hope for the safe return of Natalie. Is it a blind hope or one rooted in reality?  How do Mae’s reactions and feelings differ from Leason’s and why?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7.     How did you react to Mae’s relationship with her daughter, Dana?   Would you have handled things differently if you were in Mae’s position?

 

 

 

 

8.    June Bug meets several kindhearted people throughout the story—Sheila, the couple at the Arkansas farmhouse, Mrs. Linderman, Big Mac, the pastor, and the family at the water park.  How do their actions demonstrate their faith?  Of all the characters in the book, whose faith journey do you identify with the most?

 

 

 

 

9. What factors motivate John to return to Dogwood?

 

 

 

 

10.     Every time Mae thinks of Natalie, Romans 8:28 comes to mind, even though she isn’t sure how the verse relates to her situation.  Do you think the verse becomes clear to Mae later?  Describe a time in your life when you’ve seen God work through a difficult situation.
