Ordinary Magic (Quotes)

I heard Mom coming down the hall well before she charged through the door, questions pouring out of her.  "What's wrong?  Are you okay?  You didn't blow up anything, did you?  What happened?  Are you hurt?  You don't look hurt.  What happened?" she snapped at the mages.  Two jumped back and the one I bumped into burst into tears.
 Dad, on the other hand, strolled in with a cup of lemonade in one hand, a sugar cookie in the other.
Mr. Grady cleared his throat.  "No one was hurt."  He paused for a moment.  "Mr. Hale.  Mrs. Hale.  I fear I have some unfortunate tidings.  It pains me to have to tell this to anyone, let alone to a distinguished couple such as yourselves, whom I have always regarded as pillars of our fine commun-"
"Get to the point," Mom exploded. 
 "She's an ord."
 "Beg your pardon?" Dad asked.  Only Dad could sound totally relaxed and totally serious at the same time, while eating a cookie.
"She didn't even make it past the first stage," said Mr. Grady.  "She has nothing.  She is nothing.  She's an ord." 
- Chapter 1, Page 13


I LOVE THIS BOOK!!  Did that make you laugh?  Because I've read that at least 5 times over again, and every time I laugh out loud.
And guess what surprise I have for you?

  5. Hahahahahaha you're so cute, Sierra!! x) And this book sounds absolutely adorable too! The cover has that magical sort of  middle grade feel to it, and that excerpt? I googled "ord" to figure out what it was (and got some REALLY weird results!) before I realized that it was short for ordinary LOL! x)

    Thanks so much for sharing this sweetness, Sierra! I will be seeing you next Wednesday for sure! ;D <3
