Chapter 7

  1. What is the Reverend’s Brigade?
  2. Describe Addie Ann’s relationship with Flapjack. Have you ever had a similar relationship with a pet? If so, describe.
  3. Why does Addie Ann act like a mother to Mama by trying to give her comfort? Have you ever felt like the grownup around an adult? If so, when? Did you mind? Why or why not?
  4. Addie Ann overhears Mama tell Uncle Bump, “He goin’ home.” What does Mama mean by this?
  5. At the end of chapter 7, Addie Ann asks her brother if he’s here. She says, “My brother tells me he is.” Did Elias speak? Has Elias come home? (Hint: The author deliberately left this part unclear, so give your best guess as to what is going on.)
