• Following is the rest of book.  As I'm reading, think about what you would do as each of the different characters.  They are all presented with different choices and they all act in different ways. Would you still want to be a young Pioneer? How do you feel about what's going on in the story.  There is a betrayal - does Sasha believe it or not?  If you lived in that time, how do you think you would feel about the Communist Party?  What did you think of the author's note at the end?  What did you think about what he had to say about his experiences?
