Graceling Discussion!!

It's been a long time coming, but here it is - our Graceling discussion! We're starting with the following question:

How does your opinion of Kasta change through the book? Explain.

think my opinion of Kasta changed when she met Bitterblue. Those chapters - her meeting her and the
dangerous hike through the mountains - showed a deeper, less selfish side to Kasta. It made me think "She really does have a heart. There is so much more to her Grace than killing and it shows." We haven't had alot of chances through the story until that point to see that motherly and caring side to Kasta. Being neglected and alone, she tends to keep to herself. Even with Po, she is unsure of where she stands. But when she saves Bitterblue and leaves Po behind to do what she must, we see raw human emotion and a new Kasta emerges.
