Back of the Book Blurb #73 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!)

Love Conquers All

Heinz was in love with Marie! He had asked her out several times but she always had a reason she couldn’t meet with him. One time she had to waterproof her mittens and another time she had to clean the lint out of her carpet. If she would let him, he’d be glad to help her. Finally, the opportunity came! She said a rat that ran under her building was keeping her up at night and she was too tired. So, he spent all day in the sewers under the buildings and finally caught that darn rat with his trusty rifle! Then he popped out of the manhole outside of her building and called up to her apartment. He hoped that now she would be able to go out with him after all! Will she go out with him now? Read on to find out. (145 words)

Ooh! A love story! I never would have thought of that angle. Well done.

Pat--I agree with Val. You took this in a romantic direction...

Thanks for playing along this week.
