At first I had to read this book for school. I'm going to be honest. The beginning is NOT interesting. But when I read up to about chapter 6, I read the whole rest of the book on sparknotes! The ending was a bit shocking, and I have no idea why Papa would do that. If someone could reply and explain to me why Papa did what he did that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Papa lights the field because he and the Logan's have gone through so much together. They have been battered by racism, inequality and physical pain. Papa did make a decision without the Logan's but he did it for the better of the children.
