Back of the Book Blurb #5 Challenge

In Back of the Book Blurb #5 Challenge from Sioux's Page, Sioux offers this challenge. 

She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

·                The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title).
·                The genre is wide-open.
·                Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post.
·                Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs. 
·                You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)


The Cardinal

Laura hated her stepmom and stepsisters! Every day she wished that she could be a bird and fly away. She was tired of feeling miserable all of the time. But sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for. After a particular hard day arguing with her stepsisters, she was punished severely by her stepmother. Thankfully she was still allowed to go to the church get together where she was expected to bring some refreshments this month. She dressed up in her mother’s old red dress and headed to the church. Along the way she stopped to rest. When she looked at the map of the area behind the glass frame, instead of the map she saw a red cardinal. When she moved, it moved. Before long, she realized that she wasn’t watching a bird but was looking at herself. She had turned into a red cardinal. (148 words)

Just like the Home Alone boy, her wish backfired!

Pat--I LOVED what this photo inspired you to do. What a book this would be.
