Post the title and author of the book you’re currently reading.  Find an example of the author’s use of a short and long sentence together (long sentence can come before short sentence).  Write the sentence between quotation marks and place the page number in parenthesis.

Here’s an example from The Giver by Lois Lowry: “Release of newchildren was always sad, because they hadn’t had a chance to enjoy life with in the community yet.  And they hadn’t done anything wrong” (7).

Your post must be between 50 and 70 words and posted by 5:00 PM Friday (9/30)
