We have some great discussion questions for your reading group about Shtum by Jem Lester.
As you can see below, other groups have enjoyed reading and discussing this book:
“I cannot stress highly enough how much I loved this book. Simply charming, beautiful and gut-wrenching. This would appeal to anyone who is a parent or has a parent! Told from the point of view of Ben a 30-something father of a severely autistic boy, this book grabs your heart strings, pulls them sideways and then snaps them back!”
“A sucker-punch of a novel. Harsh and unforgiving at times, sweet and heart-warming at others. A fascinating insight into the life of a family with a severely autistic child. You’ll smile at well as cry!”
