Take the nearest book next to you and answer the following questions:
Flower Children: A Novel by Maxine Swann
Is the book dedicated to anyone? If so, whom?
"For my mother and father and my siblings, Leda, Jake, and Kyle"
What is the first sentence?
"They're free to run anywhere they like whenever they like, so they do."
Turn to page 47. Please share the first sentence of the first full paragraph.
"We scoot through a city, stopping at stoplights."
Wow, that was pretty boring. Come to think of it, the meme I did back in 2005 was pretty boring, as well (and Karen was responsible for me doing that one, too. Hmmm...)
Flower Children is a pretty good book so far, though it's more of a novella than a novel. Actually, it's more like a bunch of related short stories than anything else. That would make sense, since the book started out as a short story (read part of it here) that was featured in the Best American Short Stories 1998 anthology.
