Today I finished reading the first chapter of Theodosia and the Pirates: The War Against Spain, which is an engrossing and educational historical novel by Aya Katz. I have created two new questions to ask myself about the text, which helps me pay attention when I read. Here are the questions I asked myself to think about what the characters were doing in this first chapter of the book. There is also a Preamble to this novel, which is why this is part two of the reading guide that I have created for myself.
1. What does Jules say his father Jean Laffite should do to Daniel Patterson, and why is Theodosia surprised by this suggestion?
2. Why does Theodosia ask Jean Laffite to stop in US territorial waters before they complete the trip to Snake Island?
Are you intrigued to learn the answers to these questions? Then buy the novel by Aya Katz to learn what happens next.
