-from Ten Miles Past Normal by Frances O'Roark Dowell
Trying to maybe sneak back into blogging in the smallest and easiest way possible, with a random-page-quote from my current read for Teaser Tuesdays.
I've been steadily reading Frances O'Roark Dowell's books this spring/summer, and she's a wonderful writer. This book is her first YA (rather than middle grade) novel, and it was a great read---funny and quirky and truthful, made me grin ear to ear a lot as I flipped the pages.
When I flipped to a random page and selected this quote, I was happy to remember that I happened to have a pretty darn cute rock sitting around on my bedside table. I try not to load up my pockets too much with rocks and shells and stuff when I walk on the beach, but I couldn't resist this one. It's like an illustration from an Earth Science textbook about...uh. Whatever type of rock it is. (I swear that I did pass Earth Science.)
