Day 2 AtU Read Along Ch. 7-12
Ch. 7 - Amy describes her nightmare. It wasn't real- right?!
Is anyone else getting freaked out by Amy's frozen chapters?
Ch. 8 - Elder heads to the hospital to see his best friend, Harley. There we meet Doc, the only doctor on the ship. We find out that Elder takes mental meds. Then we meet Harley, a painter, who is Elder's best friend and who lives in the mental ward. Elder really comes alive when he is in the ward with the only people he really calls friends. He thrives on the creativity and chaos there. Elder then heads to examine the level that Orion told him about. Once there, he sees that Amy's door is open. Her red hair draws Elder to her like a moth to a flame. He immediately checks her out- he is 16 after all and she IS naked. The Doc catches him down there and Eldest makes him leave.
What is your first impression of Harley?
What do you think of Doc?
What do you think of Elder's first glimpse of Amy?
Ch. 9 - Amy has a dream about the new planet and her life there. She is still floating through dreams and nightmares.
Ch. 10 - Eldest drags Elder to the learning center and leaves him there to learn the third cause of discord. Elder wants to disobey but doesn't feel that he can.
Ch. 11 - Amy thinks about Jason. Then she begins to feels things and hear things. As she starts to panic, her heart begins to beat and she starts to feel the pain.
Why do you think Amy panics about being unfrozen?
Ch. 12 - Doc finds Elder in the garden near the hospital. Elder admits that he just wants to see Amy. Doc tells him to get over it that she is frozen and he is not. Nothing can come of obsessing over her. They see Orion walking up the stairs of the recorder hall. Doc thinks that Orion reminds him of someone he used to know. Then the cryo level alarm goes off and they race down to find Amy's box out on the table in the center aisle. She's awake and thrashing in her box. As they struggle to get the lid off, Amy pulls her tubes and begins screaming in pain.
Who do you think thawed her?
Who do you think Orion reminds Doc of?
That's it for Chapters 7-12. We're just about to see Amy and Elder meet for the first time. Remember to leave your answers to the questions in the comments below as well as any questions or items for discussion that you may have. I hope to see ya'll back here on July 9th when we cover Chapters 13-18 and we see what Amy thinks of Elder and of the Godspeed.
