    pertaining to the events that have happened in
    the chapters.

    alerted. Using your imagination, write a short
    story in which you travel on a journey to save
    something or someone. Be as creative as
    possible---anything goes!!

    form of a letter to an editor, or simply an essay
    for a magazine. Tell whether you liked the book
    or not and why, and reflect on the different
    possibilities that the author could have been
    playing on with the Black Thing, It, and the
    neighborhood and people of Camazotz.

    will be similar to the quizzes, and will include
