Taking a break from cozies, my book this week is a middle grade fantasy novel - A Dragon's Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans by Laurence Yep & Joanne Ryder.
The book doesn't actually come out until March 10th, but I'm reading it early thanks to Amazon's Vine program.
And it begins with:
It was a lovely funeral for Fluffy, the best pet I ever had. I was pleased with the turnout at the mansion. Mourners filled the large backyard and mingled as the sun broke through the San Francisco fog.
And from page 56:
Before dawn, the book snapped shut, dark and still again, and all our troubles began.
Have a great weekend!
