"I don't read the last page first," she said. "I only read the last page when I get to a boring part in the book."
"It's too much of a temptation," she confessed.
"I finished Uglies!" She was very excited to report it.
"Did you like it?" I wanted to know.
She nodded. "It was really good."
"Did you start Pretties?" I asked her.
"Well, I tried to start reading it at recess, then my friend came and started talking to me and telling me about how a bird pooped on her sister, so I got a little distracted. So I only read one page."
Rereading this still makes me laugh.
