Read It Forward Questions and Answers:

  • From the start I surprise, and shoot for the stars. Starch and smarts help my character survive. My story’s second home is a silver screen. (I believe the answer is The Martian)
  • I tell the story of sisters three, one reasoned, one passionate, one young. One marries a carnival ride, one loves a tree and a bee. My title is an excess of s. Sense and Sensibility
  • I open with a clue, a scrap of ruby and gold. A mark of sin and scold. Lost at sea, or so we thought. An oyster’s treasure is produced. Sometimes, attempts to destroy only strengthen. (I believe the answer is The Scarlet Letter)
