Back of the Book Blurb #107 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!)

The Brick Wall

Every day he heard the children as they walked past him, but they never noticed him. They were all involved in their little dramas and he found it interesting to hear what their hopes and dreams were.

He missed being a human but ever since that night when something happened, and he could change into inanimate objects, he found that a brick wall was the best thing to be. He could hear what people were saying and no one bothered him.

Yet, when he saw the bullies picking on little Peter, it made him mad. He wished Peter would stand up to the bullies, but Peter just put his head down as if he was ashamed of being alive. Racking his brain, he tried to think of something he could do to help Peter without traumatizing him. Surely there was a way to get Peter to stand up for himself! (150 words)
