2. Preview your book by answering the following questions on your group's wiki page:
  • What do you think this novel will be about based on the cover art? (complete sentence)
I think this novel will be about a girl who has suffered through a war, probably a civil one. The reason that I think this is because the cover is of a sad looking girl, and because the title is The Woman Warrior it just gives off the notion that there will be wars involved in the reason for the girl's sadness.
