I’m reading a really good book right now called Ways to Live Forever by Sally Nichols (out in September). Sam is an 11-year-old boy who has leukemia, and he is writing a book about his life. In the book he includes lists, questions, stories, and facts. Fact #5 about Sam: “By the time you read this, I will probably be dead.” He wants to know more about death, but for Sam, it is one of those questions that nobody ever answers.
My 3 questions, InkSplot reader, are for YOU to ponder:
1. What 5 facts about you would you include in a book about yourself?
2. What are some of your questions that nobody ever answers?
3. What are 10 things you want to do before you die?
