My Book Beginnings is taken from GIRLS' NIGHT OUT by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke:


"Waves lapped against the shore.  It sounded as if the sea were breathing.  In and outIn and out.  Between the whitecaps breaking against the sand, there was a pause, almost as if the ocean were inhaling and preparing to release another breath.  In and out. In and out.
