Bookclub-in-a-Box takes the reader into the world of thirteen-year-old Briony, a child who is mesmerized by the potential of the imaginary world and by the power of words. Her stories and plays allow her to come out of an adult world, where she feels inconsequential and helpless, into a different world, the world of her imagination. She is not yet mature enough to understand that her pretend world can impact the real world and vice versa. In honor of her brother's return home, Briony has written a play, but in the midst of family chaos, the opportunity to present this play is lost. One thing leads to another, but everything revolves around the unintended use of a single word, the accusation of rape.

The Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide looks at the following ideas:
  • Ian McEwans powerful mastery of words and storytelling
  • the impact that words have on our consciousness and our behavior
  • the meaning behind the title, Atonement, and the influence of that definition
  • how storytelling relates to personal character
Every Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guide includes complete coverage of the themes and symbols, writing style and interesting background information on the novel and the author, as well as a complementary RAG (Read-Along-Guide), a quick reference pamphlet offering interesting facts and questions to consider while reading the novel.
