First Chapter First Paragraph Thursday Intros ~ The House on Sunrise Lagoon: Sam Makes a Splash by Nicole Melleby
There are towns in New Jersey where the houses sit along lagoons, instead of streets. The lagoons feed into the bay, which feeds into the Atlantic Ocean, which is why the lagoons are filled with fish and crabs, and sometimes, if you’re lucky, turtles. Neighbors’ backyards face one another, families separated by water and boats, but you’re close enough to know everyone’s business. Voices carry easily, and none were louder than the voices of the Ali-O’Connor family. Their house sat at the end of one such lagoon.
