FARGO, N.D. (AP) - In a story May 27 about some students finishing the book of a classmate who died, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the school was in North Dakota. It is in Minnesota.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Minnesota students finish late classmate’s book

Minnesota 4th-graders finish late classmate’s book; girl died of leukemia over a year ago

WADENA, Minn. (AP) - A group of Minnesota fourth-graders has finished the book of a classmate who died of leukemia a year and half ago.

Jane Fiemeyer started writing the book between surgeries and treatments at the hospital, but she didn’t get to write all chapters of the fairy tale entitled, “The Life of Bobby Quinn.”

WDAY-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1pgCTPZ) that each of the fourth-graders in Wadena was assigned a chapter for the book not knowing what anyone else was writing. Jane’s mother, Jil Fiemeyer, says all chapters fit together perfectly.

Carson Kern, one of Jane Fiemeyer’s classmates, says he thinks Jane is “looking down and smiling.”
