10 things to do before I die
by Daniel Ehrenhaft
Finished the book (218)

Ted Burger is going to die. An internal conflict is that he doesn't know how to express everything he's feeling, and how to get his true self out. He starts to use the fact that he's dying as an excuse to tell people exactly how he feels, and by doing this he feels better for getting all of his feelings out. An external conflict is when Ted kisses Mark's girlfriend. Now Nikki doesn't know who she has feelings for, and Ted doesn't know how to tell Mark the truth. Nikki decides to tell Mark, and now Ted has the new problem of Mark getting mad at him. He ends up just talking things out with Mark, even though there friendship will never be the same. I think Ted shouldn't have kissed Nikki, and should have confronted Mark himself.

  1. Why do you think Ted wants to get his feelings out? Why doesn't Ted tell Mark himself? If he did tell Mark would their relationship be different?
