New! Discussion Questions for All of Me

  • Before reading All of Me, what was your opinion about someone with Autism?
  • Did Maren’s perspective challenge that opinion? Did her personality teach you something new about someone living on the spectrum?
  • Why do you think Caleb is drawn to Maren?
  • One of Caleb’s weaknesses is his back-and-forth between Sara and Maren. Why do you think that is? Do you agree or disagree with the idea that his concept of how his life should be was hardest for him give up? And that someone like Sara was a part of his original plans?
  • Why do you think Maren allows Caleb to remain in her life? Do you think she ‘understood’ what he was doing?
  • Maren’s honesty is one piece of her personality. Do you think she ever truly felt bad for saying how she feels in the moment?
  • Do you think Maren feels any less than someone who is neurotypical?
  • Maren’s family has influence over her life. Do you think they hold her back or hold her in place?
  • What do you think Maren’s strengths are?
  •  Do you think Caleb truly loved Maren in the end?
