Discussion questions for after reading the book:

  • Lucy can do some pretty amazing things, but you might have some super-powers of your own. What personality traits do you have that make the world around you a better place?
  • Have you ever had a friend who was different from the other kids in your class or friend group? How does this difference seem to affect their friendships? How has it affected you?
  • Lucy asks Candy to keep a pretty big secret for her. Has a friend ever trusted you with a secret? Could you keep it? How did it make you feel?
  • When Candy found out Lucy couldn’t eat doughnuts, she decided she wouldn’t trade doughnuts to do the things Lucy could do. Would you give up being able to eat your favorite food if it meant having Lucy’s abilities? Why or why not?
