I’ve just be tagged by Lindsay Ribar to do the 777 Challenge. The rules: post seven sentences of your work, start on page seven, seven lines down. The following is from my third YA, Look Both Ways!
Desi and Jermaine shout hello to my dad in the kitchen as we head inside, and Sutton marches up to Skye and plants her tiny fists on her hips. “Did you know I’m adopted?” she challenges.
Skye’s eyes go all soft and gooey. “Aren’t you precious,” she breathes.
“I’m not precious. I’m Chinese.”
Jermaine leans over to kiss Marisol’s mouth, then her belly. “How’re you feeling, sweet girl?”
“Like I swallowed two bowling balls that like to punch me in the bladder. It’s delightful.”
Sutton looks up at her. “You ate a bowling ball?”
There you have it, folks.
I hereby tag Nicole Lisa, Kayla Olson, and Liz Whelan, because I don’t feel like tagging seven people and I DO WHAT I WANT.
