Dear Mr. Moore:

            I recently read your memoir, The Other Wes Moore.  Parts of the book really inspired me, and parts really bothered me.  I read the book with my English 9 class at St. Francis Preparatory School in Queens, NY.  [Then continue with your comments, questions, responses.  You don’t have to start the way I did, but do include some information about yourself.  Be sure to refer to specific details of the book as you make your point and explain your ideas.]
