I looked back at the covers of a few of her books & none of them really have anything to do with the story. My beloved Where the God of Love . . . has a pretty cover that is quite nice to look at with its two cherries & all, but cherries have no relevance to the story - which I mean as a bit of a joke because the book is about people & not fruit, but it doesn't even work in a metaphorical sense. It makes me wonder what kind of say Bloom has over what's on the cover or if the images are picked by someone else?
I would use this book in a lit circle. Students will be assigned different roles, such as passage master, the connector, the creator of a different ending or the added character (make up a character in the book. What or who would you be? why?)
I could use this book in a classroom to coincide with a unit on the Civil War. It had rich details of what life was actually like in that time period. It was a bit of a difficult read, so it would need to be for older students.
Consideration of Instructional Application: This book I would have in my library for the more advance readers in my classroom if I was teaching younger kids (2nd-3rd grade). If I was teaching 4th grade, I would possibly read this book out loud during read aloud time and we would use this book to discuss literary elements like suspense, themes, character elements, and setting.
