What do I think about Lucy so far?
Yeah so far I like her , she's had a tough life and its not normal for anyone to go and pick up her dad almost everyday at a bar. I think she gets tired of it , it's like she's he parent in the book , it should be the other way around. I think she's embarrassed of the way she looks and how tall she is , especially when she cant even fit in her home. Lucy thinks she's not normal and she wants to be normal like every other kid.

Why do you think Lucy doesn't want to have Shelia over or go to Shelia's house? Why do you think Lucy always goes to her dads home from the bar? Why doesn't she just leave him there?
I think Lucy cares about her dad then she's showing because each night or day she has to take her father home and basically parenting her father and I think Lucy don't want Shelia thinking any more less toward her father.. I think she thinks people judge to much and I think she maybe also thinks other people like Shelia might judge the way she lives at home or her dad.

Why do you think Lucy leaves town after Bar dies? why then and not after any of the nights her dad passed out in the bar? What do you think is going to happen next?
I think Lucy went packing and left town after Bar died because Bar didn't judge her and Bar was there for her when she needed someone to just talk to and Bar got Lucy when Sheila really had no idea what was really happening but Bar did and Lucy knew that Bar knew exactly what was going on and Bar didn't judge Lucy because of it. I think she left town because she just couldn't deal with her dads crap anymore, he's acting like child and Lucy is more mature then her own father is. Plus she had hope that her dad was going to help and actually act like a father but then Bar died she lost something that made her happy.

Why does Lucy go through with the drinking contest? What do you predict about this turn of events (meeting the crew of the Miranda Lee and winning the survival suit)? What would you have done if you were her?
I wouldn't know what to do with the survival suit, I think she went on with the drinking contest was for her to pretend to get drunk and get a place to stay in the storage room, from the experience she got from her father.

Given the little bit that Lucy has learned about crabbing so far, which part would you be the most nervous about and why? What do you think is going to be the toughest part of this job for Lucy?
I would probably be nervous about trying to impress Harley and how I would become friends with everyone and also try to not get caught about my age. I would hate to stay up almost all night to be on the look out. Tracer isn't really a cool guy.

Why do you think Lucy cries at the end of chapter 6 when she never cried in Sitka — not about her dad, her mom, the bullying, or Bar dying?
I think she started crying because she's in a different place and nobody really knows what she's been though and she just cant take being away from her home town, or maybe she just now shows her emotions as a late reaction.

On page 109 Lucy thinks that "… with every new pain in my arms, the rest of me hurts a little less." What does she mean by this statement? Have you ever had this experience?
I think she means she's getting use to getting hurt all the time and finally she kind of has people who kind of care somewhat about her, I think she don't really care about getting hurt anymore cause she's finally getting use to people hurting her all the time and I think she's putting the past in the past and she's going to leave it there.
And no I haven't had this experience yet.

Why do you think Lucy tries to tell Geneva her real name at the end of chapter 8? Why then?
I think she tried to tell Geneva because she just couldn't keep it in anymore cause she finally has people who care about her. I also think shes beginning to trust everyone and she thinks shes feeling safe and comfortable and I think she also see a relationship or friendship. I also think she don't like lying to everyone and I also think she hates being called barb because it makes her think of barb.

Lucy wonders in chapter 10 if she is hurting anybody back in Sitka. Do you think she is? If so, who? If not, why not?
To be honest I don't think shes hurting anyone because back in Sitka no one payed attention to Lucy and plus shes only been in Kodiak for like 20 or somedays and I don't think her dad or anyone would have noticed besides Shelia because that was her only friend.

Would it have made a difference if Lucy had remembered to ask Tracer to the big dinner they all had together? Would he have been nicer to her and not out to get her?
I don't think it would have made a difference at all because Tracer is going to himself no matter what happens because he rotten to everyone and he just don't give a crap about anyone but himself.

What would you have done if you were Lucy? Would you have paid Tracer? Told Harley? Did Lucy have a good option here?
I don't know what I would have done maybe I would have did the same thing as what Lucy would have done but maybe I would have done something more dangerous but I don't know maybe I would , Tracer is being dumb on trying to black mail a kid especially Lucy she doesn't need that in her life but I would also tell Harley and see what happens from there and maybe he would let Lucy stay on the boat and help out and then Harley would probably fire Tracer because of what he has done to Lucy.

Did Lucy do the right thing in saving Tracer? What do you think the deal was with the Orca in the Bering Sea?
I don't know if I would have done the exact thing as what Lucy did but I think I would help him out just a little bit but for what he has done to her I don't think I would have now but I don't know what I would have done. Lucy should have just left Tracer in the water for what he has done to her because he's just not a good guy to anyone.

does Lucy make the right decision in returning to her dad and Sitka? Why or why not?
I don't know if its the right decision or wrong decision but Lucy should deserve the best as she could right now cause she needs her dad right now especially if she came back to Sitka and left Kodiak, but in my opinion I think she should have stayed in Kodiak because she had a family finally.
