Book Quote Thursday: 8/2/12

I've been feeling like such a slacker in regard to my writing.  I've done very little this summer but it has been on my mind a lot.  Now that there are some BIG changes in the works for our family (more on that later) I feel a more pressing need to finish my manuscript. 

That said, I totally dropped the ball on Book Quote Thursday.  The last one I did was in May and yes, the correct answer was 'Where the Wild Things Are' by Maurice Sendak.  It broke my heart to discover we'd be losing him a short time later.

So, I Slacker McSlackingson, announce the winner of May's Book Quote Drawing:

MARGE W. from Salt Lake City, Utah

This makes me particularly happy because I particularly love and adore this woman.  (That has less to do with the fact that she's my grandmother and more to do with the fact that she is awesome!)

So, keep your eye out for the prize, my Dear, it will come to you compliments of the USPS very soon.

In an effort to turn over a, I'm starting off August right.  Here's the first book quote.  

“When she was in high school, Deborah cried and lay awake at night worrying about what awful things might have happened to her mother and sister...”

Name that beautiful, devastating, thought provoking book.
