Book questions and reading guides/discussion guides for book clubs - more than printable reading guides for exceptional books. Glossy locks lifted on the wind. Grew like a thatch of straw on a roof. Grizzled, gray hair. Hair drooped around pale cheeks. Hair like Rapunzel. Hung like a dark river. Left unbound to tumble. Like a clown wig, artificial red, plastic shine and fuzzy. Like a thatched roof. Like she put her finger in a light socket. Limp and lifeless. With the wind in my hair So many roads I've yet to travel So many friends I haven't met So many new adventures just around the bend Plenty of mysteries to unravel Tons of mistakes to not regret So much to see and to do and to be, a whole life to spend And it doesn't end And I got the wind in my hair and a song in my heart and the fun's only started.
