  • Are you happy with the way the story ended? Write a letter to the author, Janie Lancaster, and tell her what you think of her story. Should she get it published as a book? Think about how the author began the story, how you feel about the characters and how the author made you feel that way. Who is your favorite character and why? What did you like best about the story? Try to use words from your writers' notebook in your letter. We will send all your letters to Janie Lancaster.
