I have chosen holes by Louis Eschar I chose the book of how interesting the blurb was and how the book started off in the first couple of chapters I think This book is going to be very funBy Capri Taylor
What did the author do in the first couple of chapters that made you want to carry on reading Capri? How could you use this knowledge in your own writing to grab the reader's attention?)(Remember basic surface features - expecially when you have the book to refer to for correct spelling, etc).
