One thought on “LAST SUMMER OF THE DEATH WARRIORS by Francisco Stork

  1. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

    1. From beginning to end, I was rooting for Pancho to do the right thing. How did Stork create a main character who is both very flawed yet very likable?

    2. Many people say boys don’t read YA, and thus it’s almost impossible to sell a “boy book” in YA. Do you think LAST SUMMER is a realistic story that teenaged guys would enjoy? If so, how did Stork appeal to that audience?

    3. What did you think of D.Q. and his Death Warrior Manifesto?

    4. From D.Q. to Helen, from Pancho to Johnny Corazon, we see different views of faith and healing. How do these various opinions contribute to character development and plot?

    5. Your favorite character and/or scene?

    Stork has a great list of discussion questions on his website: http://www.franciscostork.com/death_warriors_questions.php . You’re welcome to look up a question on that list and discuss it here as well!
