A Reader’s Guide To Katy Regan’s Little Big Love

Cozy Readers, we’re excited to feature Katy Regan’s Little Big Love in our June boxes! This feel-good story is certain to tug at your heartstrings. The novel centers on 10-year-old Zac, who’s determined to locate the father he’s never met. Why? To give his mom the happy-ever-after she deserves. What Zac doesn’t realize, though, is that sometimes happy endings aren’t what they seem. 

Regan’s novel is the perfect summer read to give bookworms all those feels—deep-rooted secrets, family, lies, and love. Little Big Love is sure to be a favorite among book clubs. That’s why we’ve included 10 reader’s guide questions, courtesy of Penguin-Random House, to kickstart your think-tank!

  1. Was Juliet right to have shielded Zac from the truth about his father? Would you have done the same in her shoes? 

   2. How does Zac’s understanding of love change throughout the novel, and how does it differ from Juliet’s? 

   3. How does the author explore fatherhood and what it is to be a man? 

   4. What do the multiple viewpoints add to the novel? Are there any other characters you would have liked to have seen the perspectives of? 

   5. Are any of the characters reliable narrators? 

   6. Discuss the difference between how children and adults see the world. How do you think this is represented within Little Big Love? 

   7. What can Zac teach us about hope and optimism? 

   8. Liam is not actually present in the story until the last few chapters. How does the author help us get to know him and understand his relationship with Juliet before then? 

   9. Mick says in one of his sections in the book that there are only two emotions in life, two reasons we do anything: fear and love. Discuss this in the context of Little Big Love. 

   10. The nature of truth and facts is a big theme in the book. Mick tells Zac, “Truth can be different for different people.” What do you think about this? And what else do the characters learn about truth throughout the story?
