Ms. Wolk spent lots of time with our students talking about her book, but she shared so much more than simply insight on her novel. She talked a great deal about her experiences growing up and the stories she collected throughout her life. She told our middle schoolers the value of all of their experiences--both the good ones and the bad--and to remember them. She emphasized the power of their individual voices, even now as middle schoolers, relating them to a tsunami that begins with one drop of water and becomes something so much larger when it joins with others. Ms. Wolk was so impressed with our students and their thoughtful questions and connections.
