Reading/Writing

I have been told to write a letter to a character in this story as one of the characters ("The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle" by Avi), anyone have any tips to really GET into the character and make the letter emotional and yet still into the story?

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here are some sites on the book first of all:

1. (Broken Link Removed)

2. http://www.scholastic.com/titles/features/fiction/trueconfessions_rrr.asp

3. http://www.allreaders.com/Topics/Info_24943.asp

4. http://www.nancypolette.com/LitGuidesText/doyle.htm

The above sites are free although there are other helpful sites for which you would have to pay to download.

To do this assignment, you need to read the book. Select one of the characters (not necessarily the 13 year old girl although at your age it might be easiest to relate to her.) Analyze what type of person this is and let your imagination assist you in being that person. If you have difficulty writing a letter, pretend you are "talking" to the other person to whom you are writing.

Enjoy this assignment; it's creative!

Thanks. I did read this. (great book!) I think Im working with it!

Thank you

First, if you have a question, it is much better to put it in as a separate post in <Post a New Question> rather than attaching it to a previous question, where is more likely to be overlooked.

However, since I am not familiar with the book, , I searched Google under the key words "'I am Regina' Keehn" to get these possible sources:

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
