Read-a-thon Hour 5

Hour 5 - Book/Soundtrack Challenge:
Choose a song that represents a chapter that you are currently reading. List the book/author/chapter. Give a quick synopsis about the chapter.
I'm currently reading Tuck Everlasting. I know it was made into a movie, but I haven't seen here's my take. 

In Chapter 5, 10-year-old Winnie decides to get up early and go into the woods next to her house.  She's never explored the woods before and is curious to see where the music she heard yesterday was coming from.  She comes across a large tree and a older boy leaning against it.  Winnie watches him for a while until their eyes meet.  

A song that comes to mind is Ribbons Undone by Tori Amos.  The melody might be similar to the music Winnie heard (we find out soon that's it a music box).  But I think it also portrays Winnie's innocence as she leaves the front yard by herself for the first time and wanders into the wood.

  1. My Book
    by David L. Harrison

    I did it!
    I did it!
    Come and look at what I've done!
    I read a book!
    When someone wrote it
    Long ago
    For me to read,
    How did he know
    That this was the book
    I'd take from the shelf
    And lie on the floor
    And read by myself?
    I really read it!
    Just like that!
    Word by word,
    From first to last!
