They found themselves debating the very suggestion , that the whole thing hadn't been planned? That Juniper, the only known Blythe not to occupy the nursery in childhood, should wake on the morning of her thirteenth birthday, toss a few valued possessions into a pillowcase, then head upstairs to stake her claim on the sleeping attic, had surprised no one. The perfect contrariness of the event was so in keeping with the Juniper they knew and loved that whenever anyone spoke of it in years to come, the progression seemed utterly natural and they found themselves debating the very suggestion , that the whole thing hadn't been planned in advance. For her part, Juniper said very little on the subject, either at the time or later: one day she slept in her small annexed room on the second floor, the next she presided over the attic. What more could one say? I cannot fully understand the second sentence,especially for "they found themselves debating the very suggestion , that the whole thing hadn't been planned in advance." . Please kindly help me explain it. Thank you very much.
