Discussion: “Cries of the Innocents” by Karina Fabian

kfabian200x200“Cries of the Innocents” by Karina Fabian

See our interview with Karina here.

Discussion Questions

  • Both the main character and her brother killed others. How were their actions different? How was his killing justified while hers is murder?
  • Guilt speaks to us in different ways. Why do you think the main character’s hands itched? Why did she hear the cries but not recognize them for what they are?
  • Why did the main character see the girl with Downs Syndrome as a puppet rather than a person? Do you think she was being used by her parents to prove a point? If so, why is that okay – or is it?
