Dr. Franklin's Island by Ann Halam

Finished this book in one sitting. Haha! Took me less than a day to finish it!

After reading this book, I was glad to learn that the author included some questions for discussions at the later part. I grab a pen and paper and wrote down my answers then decided to post it in this blog. :)

1. At the start of the book, Semirah Garson (Semi) looks around at the people she is about to spend three weeks with in the Ecuadorian rain forest and on the Galapagos Islands. She makes judgements based on the way they look, and she stereotypes them. In your experience, how accurate are first impressions?
