Okay. Okay. that's my first attempt at a "hook" for a book-talk. How'd I do? And do I need to write more to prepare for a book-talk? My KidLit prof. gave us the following outline of elements to include: 1. a hook, 2. what I liked most when I read it, and 3. why I think you all might like it. I'm thinking I can improvise 2 and 3.
I know, even better, I'll make some bulleted lists.
The things about this book I liked most:
- tension: between what Bella feels and what she knows
- you'll imagine yourself in Bella's position and want to know if she and Edward survive
- there's romance AND action, especially at the end
