Summarize the book without giving away the ending. Preston Cadell is tormented by the lack of information he has about his father and wants to know more about what actually happened. It doesn't help that his mother seems to evade the issue like the plague and when he finally gets closer to the truth, he has to deal with one mystery after another but grows to discover (as does the reader) about the Mayan culture.
What did you think of the main character? I felt sorry for him. Although we should all live in the present, not knowing anything about your past or being misled about vital information can be very stressful. When Sybilla checks him for getting into a fight at school, the reader is able to sense how small he actually feels but I think Sybilla did the best she could under the circumstances she faced.
Which character could you relate to best? Sybilla. Although it was wrong for her hold back so much information from Preston, the reader is able to feel her desperation and is soon able to understand that her decisions and reactions were logical, if not necessary.
