Slide 1: 

My Scrapbook By Martha Boyle

Slide 2: 

June 7: My Hopes I hope that I can write a book someday. not like the kind we did in writing lab. A real one, like in a library or bookstore. And not a mystery or adventure one, but an emotional one. Maybe I can make kids Change their opinions on emotion books like some authors did to me. Most kids at school Call the kind of book I want to do a chapter book, but I call them novels. Maybe I could be the youngest person ever to write a novel. Maybe I can develop a unique style of writing that no other authors have. I already know the first sentence of my novel: “The orphan’s Secret wish was that her bones were hollow like A bird’s and that she could just take off and fly away.” I also hope that one day I can go to a real ocean such as the Atlantic or Pacific. I like Madison with all the lakes (especially Lake Wingra), but I think it is not the same. When I’m eighteen I want to live in a cottage on a cliff that looks over the sea. What else do I hope? I hope that I get to know Martha Boyle next year (or this summer). I hope that we can be friends. That is my biggest hope. She is the nicest person in my whole entire class.

Can you watch a hand grow old? Why did one girl die and not the other? Save me, oh save me, so I do not drown A girl with one kiss equals an ocean of tears I kissed a stone and thought to drown Who is this boy who left me a note?
