Back of the Book Blurb #45 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux 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!)


Never Too Old

Izzy knew her 90th birthday was coming up but she hoped that she could keep it low key. By not bringing attention to it, she hoped to have a quiet evening after knitting group and going home to listen to her favorite music and read a good book. Her knitting group had other ideas. She knew they were planning things behind her back. When Izzy showed up for the weekly get together, she knew she was in trouble when someone put a Mexican sombrero on her head! The group didn’t just have activities planned for this night but had crazy things planned all year long! Oh, my goodness! Did she have the stamina for all this? They say you are never too old. Read on to find out what zany adventures were in store for Izzy. (136 words)

Pat--I love the idea of an all-year birthday celebration. At 90, Izzy deserves it. Thanks for writing a blurb.

That's great! The expression on her face is perfect for a not-really-surprise party!
