Our young protagonist, Jonas, sleds “downwards, downwards, faster and faster” (p. 224). He hears what he is sure must be music ahead of him, and perhaps even behind him… But, then again, “perhaps it was only an echo” (p. 224). In this way, the author, Lois Lowry, leaves the reader wondering, WHAT HAPPENED?!
Write an additional chapter describing what, in fact, happened to Jonas. Did he live happily ever after? Or not?
