All this week, we've been sneaking a peek at Barbara's fabulous book, but we're also giving away a copy of March Misfit this week! Just leave a comment any time this week to be entered in our drawing to win your own copy of March Misfit.
Lucky for us, though, we don't have to wait until Friday to start reading March Misfit. We posted Chapter One Tuesday, Chapter Two yesterday, and today we're previewing Chapter Three. Awesome!
Here's the blurb:
When a mudslide destroys her home and kills her parents, fifteen-year-old Cara Talbot is sent to live with a distant cousin, his wife, and five sons on a dairy farm in Indiana. The stink of cattle, a tiny bedroom loft, and two brothers who resent her intrusion make life a bitter struggle. As she copes with her grief, she finds solace caring for an autistic child, who helps her see the softer side of Nicolas March, another family misfit.
And here's Chapter Three (where we get to know our hero, Nicolas!):
Nicolas straddled the leather seat and secured his helmet. Legs pedaling, his heels dug into the dirt as he backed the Harley-Davidson out of the shed. The motorcycle, bulky and solid, was a dark blue 1948 panhead. His most prized possession.
He gave a jump on the starter and listened to the engine come to life, proud of the smooth regular sound. Proud because he was responsible for that sound, like a huge contented cat. He didn’t know whether lions purred, but if they did, and he stuck an amplifier near one’s throat, surely it would resonate like this.
