Welcome again to Book Blurb Friday.  If you’re a newbie, here’s the scoop so you understand what follows.  Please click HERE or click the tab under the blog header for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme.  This is the shortened, abridged version:

Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.

Below is this week’s “book cover,” offered for our creative blurbs by the talented and generous Kathy Matthews at Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy. My blurb follows:

Moonlight Monsters
(146 words)
Gracie Porter wants to be a writer. But she’s so busy talking about her stories that sometimes reality and fiction smoosh together as easily as her favorite banana-and-pickle sandwich, making it difficult to tell if something is true or a story from Gracie’s busy imagination.
So when Gracie claims she saw something “kooka-bazooka-crazy” on the night of the full moon, no one believes her. And when she insists that the thing she saw is now prowling the halls of Wolfe Middle School disguised as the new principal, Ms. Lycan-Thrope, her friends think she’s written too many scary stories.
But when students sent to the principal’s office start disappearing, Gracie’s two closest pals begin to think Gracie may be onto something. Together with Gracie they devise a plot to spy on Ms. Lycan-Thrope and prove she’s the wiliest of monsters—a hungry werewolf in the perfect disguise.
