Discussion Guide 1 for Welcome to the Ark...

In a world of random violence and multiplying militias, four brilliant young misfits are thrown together in a group home for troubled youth.  Isolated by their special abilities, Miranda, Doug, Taryn, and Elijah are unable to cope in a society that regards them as freaks.

But in the experimental program they dub the Ark, the four discover they are not alone.  Slowly, as connections form among them, they discover that their minds have a power they could never have imagined.  Drawn together by their deep concern for the future, they embark on a mission to stop the violence that is engulfing the world.  The challenge seems impossible....

In this compelling, sensitively written story, Stephanie Tolan paints a disturbing picture of a violence-ridden world.  Yet her characters offer a bright ray of hope for anyone who cares about the fate of the earth.  The story of the Ark is gripping, suspenseful, heartbreaking, and, ultimately, inspiring.
