I am writing to you about your actions in the book The Secret Keepers by Trenton Lee Stewart. You made a couple really interesting decisions and I was wondering about why you made them.

The connections I anticipate my group members will make as a result of this question is to experiences that they have underestimated people by how the look, not how they truly are. They might think that someone is incapable of a task until they're proven wrong. This can also relate to the quote “Never judge a book by its cover”. It means to never make something or someone feel smaller or less important than they actually are, as in this saying it is the book. You never know how the book really is, by just looking at the cover.
