Discussion Questions for Part One of Black Heels to Tractor
Has this book brought you back to the beginning of a romantic relationship in your life?
What surprised you about Ree? If this was your first time reading about her background, did anything surprise you about her "beginnings?"
While reading Part I of Black Heels, did you find yourself comparing your own love life/story to Ree's?
Would you have handled ex-boyfriend (J) the same way or differently than Ree did?
Have you ever made a life-changing decision based on a guy in your life? And how did it work out for you?
How do you think Ree's family felt that she was just going to give up going to Chicago for a guy she had just met?
If you were Ree and started to question your life plan (leaving Cali, moving to Chicago, being independent for a while)...how would you feel when this sudden romance came into your life at the 'wrong' time?
How do you think the situation with Ree's parents affected her relationship with Marlboro Man? (Or do think it did not affect her?)
Have you ever felt an instant connection with someone? How did it turn out?
What made you relate to Ree? In what ways could you not relate to her?
I love all the details of Ree's cooking for Marlboro Man in the early stages of their relationship. Have you ever made anything for the guy in your life that was just an utter disaster? Did he choke it down anyway?
How much of Ree's book do you think is truth or fiction? How much did she embellish? Do you think she omitted or added anything? Obviously she couldn't get EVERYTHING that happened during this period of her life in the book, but I kept wondering what was left out and if some of the stuff she was writing was built up just a teensy tiny bit.
