A middle grade mystery
An excerpt from Red Hat:
You never realize how big a mountain lion is until you’re standing thirty feet from one. They. Are. Ginormous. You feel so small, the first thing that pops into your head is, "Do I look like a meal?" The second thing is, “Of course you do. DON’T MOVE!”
I didn’t think, Hey, let’s see if we can talk our way out of this one. Although, I am good at that. I can make stuff up, and people believe it, most of the time. But you don’t talk your way out of a showdown with a beast with fangs and claws that’s, like, 200 pounds, maybe 250. I was 125 pounds on a good day! That’s about average for a twelve-year-old, but right now I didn’t need average. Right now, I needed a Superman cape.
