“Don’t tell me,” Sammy begged. “Don’t tell me any more.”
“But you asked me to!” Dicey protested.
The sun was rising, turning the sky and air a rosy gold color. Gulls wheeled through the air. A boat motored quietly down the river, the people on it dark figures.
“You did,” Dicey insisted. “You did ask me.” She reached over and tickled Sammy under his arm. He squirmed. She reached her other arm over and wrestled him down to the grass, tickling, crying, “You did, you did, you did. Say so.”
Sammy screamed with laughter and wriggled under her hands. “All right, I did!”
- Homecoming by Cynthia Voigt
As in my last post, I’m not expecting many people to recognize the characters, but I am so fond of the Tillermans :) Do check out the series if you get the opportunity.
I LOVE THESE BOOKS.
And your art.
Just. Perfect combination.
