Famine #73: Stuck with You

It’s Weekend Writing Warriors time again, and I’m still featuring snippets from Famine. Here’s another excerpt from it. This precedes last week’s post by a few chapters.


Famine by Monica Pierce

Matilde crossed her arms and glared at the night passing beyond the wide observation windows. “I ain’t getting away, am I? I’m stuck with you.”

“I’m not your warden.” Bartholomew rested his forearms upon his knees and interlaced his fingers. “But I can’t help you if you run away from me.”

She went to a window. “I think the monsters want you, not me.”

And don’t forget to check out all the other WeWriWa snippets this week. Many great writers to be discovered and revisited.

  • I love Matilde! He’s not fooling her–such an intelligent and tough little angel. Anyone who reads this, take Monica up on the review copy offer. Outstanding book!

  • I like the little girl, she’s tough and she tells it like it is. Great snippet!

  • She’s certainly no shrinking violet.

    Oh she’s such a sweetie! I’m loving this!

  • Seems like an excellent read, based on both the description and the excerpt! If I weren’t so bogged down right now (reviewing another book, finishing edits on my own, and entering the last few weeks of the school year) I’d jump at the chance to review for you.
