Reader's Retell of book of choice

Please read a book of your choosing for about 20 minutes, and then add a summary (retell) here that tells me about what you have just read. Click add to start a response, then click on drawing to create your work. I am looking to hear main details, in your own words, so I can learn about the book you are reading. Use label to add the title of the book, and the author, please. If the book sounds good and I don't know of it, I will go looking for it to read based on your retell. Pick a book you are enjoying reading, and add a photo of the cover of the book. Then, using video or mic tell me about your book. Try to add some expression to your voice and name the characters you are telling me about, don't just say he or she or they, as I won't know who you are talking about. I want to create my own video in my brain as I hear your retell.
