This Is How You Lose Her Assn, through “The Pura Principle”
1) Reread the top of page 38: “That was the summer when everything we would become was hovering just over our heads. Girls were starting to take notice of me; I wasn’t good looking but I listened and I had boxing muscles in my arms. In another universe probably came out ok, ended up with mad novias and jobs and a sea of love in which to swim, but in this world I had a brother who was dying of cancer and a long dark patch of life like a mile of black ice waiting for me up ahead.”

Answer: How does this passage relate to the question of the essay prompt? Discuss.

2) Creative assignment: Mami is hosting the church women for tea and is going to bake a fruit tart. The three of them, her, Rafa and Yunior go to the farmer’s market to help her get the items. What happens?

Do this best as you can maintaining this voice. Be creative, use dialog, have fun.

Q2:

Considering the first half of This Is How You Lose Her, Yunior makes (aggravatingly) constant poor decisions that leave himself and those important to him deeply hurting. My question is, based on what you’ve read so far, is this self-destructive/selfish behavior his fault? Is he to be held accountable? Or not? Explain your answer, providing three references to the book.

Q3:

Respond to a classmate.(I will send it to you later.)
