This is my first Loony Blurbs, and it is gonna be fun! Loony Blurbs is a meme hosted by Emily @ The Loony Teen Writer. The point is to come up with blurbs for books based off their titles. I’m going to try to come up with blurbs for these without much thought. :) We’ll see how it goes. [Click the image above for more information about Loony Blurbs.]

Walking on Trampolines by Frances Whiting
Lilly’s summer starts normally, with sunshine and ice cream and flip-flops and vacation. Then, she falls into the sky. How? Even Lilly doesn’t know. One minute she’s climbing a great oak tree, and the next, she’s walking on clouds.
But that isn’t all. Oh, no. The sky is the least fantastic place Lilly can visit. She goes to the fabled island of Telen, where pink monkeys with flippers live in snow and stops off at a chain restaurant–that’s on the moon, called Dark Side of the Burger.
But Lilly’s last stop–Trampoline Land–makes her realize that this power isn’t a gift, but a curse. She consults Wanda the Magical Whale in Trampoline Land, who gives her valuable information and the secret to coming back to Earth.
Watch Lilly mature and make the choice of her life in this original middle grade coming-of-age story.
The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
There’s nothing Luna hates more than her stupid nickname. To her, it’s worse than some of the other words girls are called at her school. [Words like the “b-word,” which is what Luna calls it. She has her dignity, you know.]
Luna is called “Luna the Lion” because she has a fiery temper. Ever since kindergarten, the name has stuck to her like an angry wet hair.
Then a new girl comes to Luna’s high school. A new girl who doesn’t know Luna’s nickname. A new girl, who, in Luna’s opinion, should never know. She believes that this could be her shot at a new friend and reputation.
But the new girl turns out to be a witch. To everyone! Except Luna, that is.
Out of sheer craziness, Luna locks the “witch” in her closet, to keep her “pure,” only letting her out to go to the bathroom. Luna has gotten crazier than ever. Will anyone stop her? Not if Luna can help it.
