Another Third Sentence Thursday

Third Sentence Thursday

The third sentence of this book reads, "She had a little thin face and little thin body, thin light hair and a sour expression."

OMG! This must be YA novel, probably of vampire/Twilight genre, featuring a heroine based on Paris Hilton having a bad hair day. Will she be forced to choose between the handsome, yet fashion-impaired vampire Luigi or the debonair werewolf, Omar, who suffers the heartbreak of psoriasis? And what of her darling pet albino Chihuahua who is aptly named Assassin? What unspeakable (or is it unbarkable?) secrets does this vicious little critter hide?

Fortunately, this novel is none of the above. It is the story of Mary Lennox, a nine-year old girl who is the heroine of The Secret Garden, which was published in 1911, way before Ms. Hilton's time.
