Discussion Questions

Jack With a Twist

1. Brooke and Jack litigate the biggest cases of their respective careers against each other, and Monique and Jean Luc work in a business partnership with each other.  Is it ever a good idea to mix business with pleasure?  Have you ever had a relationship with someone you worked with?

2. Brooke begins to question whether or not Jack is really the man she thought he was.  Do you ever really know the person you are in a relationship with?  If so, how long does it take?  Do you ever really know yourself?

3. Which would you rather:  to finally find love after you’ve turned 30 and have had to endure bad date after bad date for years, like Brooke, or to have found love when you were eighteen, and then lose it and have to start all over again, like Vanessa?

4. When Brooke and Jack’s families meet, they do not get along.  This concerns Brooke, but Vanessa assures her that you marry the man, not his family.  Do you think that you marry just the man, or that you marry his family, too?

5. When Brooke and Jack go to look at flowers, Maximo gives them each a penny to throw into the pond and make a wish.  What do you think that Brooke wished for?  What about Jack?

6. Do you think that Brooke and Jack’s marriage will last?  Why or why not?  What about Vanessa and Marcus?  Monique and Jean Luc?

7. Miranda tells Brooke that you can’t control who you fall in love with.  Do you think that this is true?  Have you ever fallen in love with someone who you shouldn’t have?

8. If you were to make Jack with a Twist into a movie, who would you cast as all of the major characters?

9. This story is narrated by Brooke.  How would it be different if it was told from Jack’s point of view?
