I have a bit of a bad habit when it comes to reading books. I tend to read the last page before I get very far in, because I want to know if I'll be frustrated by the ending. That way, I save time by not reading the entire thing. Totally makes sense, right?
That's why this week, we're giving you a few books and their first lines, and asking you to come up with the ending line!
We don't want the real last line of the book, but rather, what would you write as the last line if you were the author? How would you end it? Be creative!
Your prompts are:
1. When he was nearly thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow. When it healed, and Jem's fears of never being able to play football were assuaged, he was seldom self-conscious about his injury.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
2. My father's family name being Pirrip, my christian name Philip, my infant tongue could make both names nothing longer or more explicit than Pip. So, I called myself Pip, and came to be called Pip.
Great Expectations by Charles Dickins
3. Mr. Jones, of the Manor Farm, had locked the henhouses for the night, but was too drunk to remember to shut the popholes.
Animal Farm by George Orwell
Based on these lines, what kind of ending would you make? Is #1 all about Jem's struggling football career, or #3 about Mr. Jones' animals running amuck? It's completely up to you!
We'll choose six winners who will be chosen based on creativity, uniqueness, and inclusion of the prompt. The winners will receive the Series 1 Emoticon Stress Balls!
