by Rune Michaels
“Orphaned as a child, terrorized by her abusive brother, and haunted by memories, Leia feels exposed, powerless, and vulnerable. When her tormented mind can stand it no longer, she escapes to the zoo, where she finds shelter and seeks refuge. The zoo is a sanctuary- a protective space for families and a safe place for the traumatized to forget. But can she ever feel safe? Can she ever forget?
Once again Rune Michaels brings us a harrowing psychological drama that raises questions about the very nature of humanity. This chilling tale will challenge our preconceptions of family, memory, and self, leaving readers wondering: Are we the pinnacle of evolution- or are we just animals on display?”
As you read through Fix Me by Rune Michaels address the following questions to ensure you are understanding all of the novels components, themes and messages.
1. What does the main character uncover about her brother that causes her to state, “I’m smiling, because for a moment I love my brother again” (pg. 3)?
Aside from the obvious- what does her discovery infer about her brother?
2. Why do you think Rune Michaels uses the example of earthquakes to describe the aftermath of a brother-sister fight?
3. The main character states, “I’m broken. But nobody’s trying to fix me.” …
4. Why do you think it could be a bad idea to stay in a house that obviously has history for Brian and the main character?
5. Why do you think Michaels leaves out the main characters real name, when she easily could have introduced it within the conversation between Aunt Phoebe and Mrs. Foster?
