[Chapters 1-2]
Ok ladies, so how do I sum this all up. In the first two chapters we learned a lot about the four characters Willem, JB, Malcolm, and Jude. We learn they were friends from college, that still play a significant role in each others lives now.
We learn about their ambitions and current career paths. We learn about their apartments, (well for some it’s more of a just a living situation.)
But what I loved learning most about these characters was their families and their past. We get a pretty deep understanding of JBs family and how their raised him. As well as Willem’s. We get a small taste of what environment Malcolm lived (and currently lives) in with his family. But Jude’s past remains a mystery.
So my questions for you... What is most interesting to you about their relationship with their families? How did it help shape their character and their current motives? What do you find interesting about the differences in their family background?

Interesting point about Malcolm @LizArnone! I agree, I think it totally adds to the story, and how he relates it to his friendship with JB. how JB sort’ve criticizes him for it.
@nicolejb I don't know yet for sure! Jude just because we don't know much at all about him. And Willem because of his brother and all that happened with his family.
@karencorchado you can move ahead! :D up to chapter 5 next week!
Yes! @Ercurrent! I just want to know more and more about Jude. he seems so interesting!!!
@szewwy totally. and that would just make he question and wonder about his identity. and also the fact he never had to face dealing with it until college (being sheltered by money and stuff) I wonder if he’ll learn anything along the journey!
