Michela Walters’s Picture Choice: 1

Title: Lost in a Book

Turning the pages, she’s captivated and taken to a far away place. With every new tale, it whisks her from her dismal life and into a fantasy world filled with love, heros and possibility. All things she thinks are outside of her tiny reach.

She slays dragons with ease while rescuing the damsel in distress. In these stories, she never worries about if her mom will come home after work with food, or if she’ll be able to have supplies for school this year. The library is her castle, the beanbag corner in the kids section, her protective dragon, keeping out all the warriors trying to break through her drawbridge and moat. In reality, it’s the one place of solace in her crazy, disorganized life.

So she comes, every day after school and stays well past dinner time, all to avoid the Projects and the chaos that comes no matter what the time of day it is. She dreams of one day writing a book that might grace the shelves of this very place, and maybe, just maybe, help another little girl through her darkest days.

For Tanisha believes the pen and the sword are equally as mighty, especially if you get to write about slaying the big bad wolf.

  1. Oh I love this! I didn't have the need to escape home that she does, but I remember the bastion the library was for me, the freedom to roam the aisles and pick something at random. That last line says it all.

    1. Kimmie! Thanks so much. I hope you are doing well and that you had a lovely summer.

  2. I love the strength she gains from her escapism into a book. May it serve her well and going by the fabulous last line, I think it will. x

    1. Thanks so much for the kind words!

  3. Thanks, Kimberly & Lizzie. I really appreciate and value your comments. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment. :)
