        Did you think the use of the foreign words and definitions help to foreshadow the events of each chapter? Why do you think the author added these?

          I always enjoy something “extra” like that. My book has been returned to the library, so I can’t reference it.  Were the titles foreign or specifically related to life on the island?

              This isn’t the book about the island, that was The Invisible Husband of Frick Island, which I also read and enjoyed. The words at the start of each chapter seemed to reflect the emotion of each chapter. There were many languages represented so I was just curious if there was some underlying message I missed during reading. I found the book available on Libby to reference.

              The Suite Spot took place on Kelly’s Island, if I remember correctly.  I’m going to have to look at a copy next time I visit the library!
