Here’s the lists of books they told ME I should look at to help improve my ending:
Baby by Patricia MacLachlan, Mutt Dog by Stephen Michael King, and Mrs. Katz & Tush by Patricia Polacco. (They had some FANTASTIC suggestions for how to revise my story. It’s great having your students show you what you can fix/make better. I love getting their insight on my writing.)
