Happy Friday Everyone! I am changing it up a little bit this week and doing a different blog meme…WOW. Book Beginnings is a blog meme hosted by Rose City Reader where you share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading. You also share your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, etc.
I also decided to participate with The Friday 56 since it ties in nicely to this blog meme. The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. The idea is to post a teaser of the book from page 56. So let’s begin…
Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate
“I noticed several weird things about the surfboarding cat.
Thing number one: He was a surfboarding cat.
Thing number two: He was wearing a T-shirt. it said CATS RULE, DOGS DROOL.
Thing three: He was holding a closed umbrella, like he was worried about getting wet.”
Jackson’s family has been going through a hard time. Due to these hard times they may have to leave their home and live in their minivan…again. Crenshaw is a large, outspoken cat that was Jackson’s imaginary friend. He has come back…to help. Okay, I am halfway through this book and am really liking it even though it covers a dark topic. Now lets take a look at page 56.
“I thought about whether it might be an ax murderer. But taking a bath didn’t seem like an ax murderer kind of thing to do…I opened the door all the way. Crenshaw was taking a bubble bath.”
What do you think? Want to dive in?
