About a decade ago, my friends and I used to drink massive amounts of coffee and smoke cigarettes and goof off. No surprise there. One of our favorite games was coming up with one-line book reports. I will never forget Greg’s deadpanned Diary of Anne Frank: “Jewish girl in an attic. NEXT!”
I think that was one of those “you had to be there” things. But since you weren’t, enjoy this forum thread instead: Describe a book to an eight year old in one sentence.
