1. Find a song that fits with a moment in your book. Write out the song's artist and title. *You may also write out the specific lyrics (school appropriate) that fit your book.

2. Explain why this song fits with your story, a specific scene, or a specific character in your book. *Reference a specific moment in the text if possible.

Does it help set the tone? Is it something the character would listen to? How does the song fit?
