Hello readers! I created this discussion guide for readers of SHINE, my young adult / teen novel. I hope teachers, librarians and readers of my book will find it useful. You can let me know what you think by messaging me on the contact form of my website http://candygourlay.com. If you have suggestions for more reference materials for SHINE, I would love to hear from you! (Watch out for the Philippine edition of Shine, out in September 2014) Candy Gourlay With thanks to: David Dean for the rain background art on the slides. David also created the cover art for Shine.
