Back of the Book Blurb #20 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 Houseguest

Jed told her that she couldn’t bring home any more animals. She knew that the 20 animals already residing at their home was a little overwhelming but they were only staying until she could find them a good home. She was a magnet for a homeless animal and they seemed to always gravitate to her. How could she turn away a sweet animal who needed a home? But this time, he was going to flip! When she brought home the last one, he put his foot down and said, “Enough was enough!” But surely he would understand that she had no other choice. Actually, he had said, “No more dogs or cats or rodents or birds!” Maybe this time, their new friend would bond with Jed and he would let it stay. Read on to find out who their new houseguest was and how Jed reacted to it. (148 words)
