Chomp Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. In what ways are the Crays a green family?
  2. If Mickey had not gotten hit in the head with that frozen iguana, would he still have taken the job with Expedition Survival? Why or why not?
  3. How would this situation have changed if Mickey were making the decisions instead of Wahoo?
  4. If we didn't know about Derek's past mistakes, how would we feel about him based on what he does? Would he be more forgivable?
  5. What effect does the information about invasive species given in the book have on the reader? What effect would it have if that information were not there?
  6. Does Derek ultimately redeem himself after attacking Jared Gordon? Why or why not?
  7. What choices could Wahoo have made differently? How would that have affected the way the story turns out?
