The Dos and Don'ts of Dialogue
By Brenda B. Covert
|"We've got a new recruit, Rosh," he [Daniel] said.|
4 Heavy legs braced, Rosh measured the newcomer. "Speak up, boy," he barked. "Who are you?"
5 Rosh was used to seeing men cringe. Joel did not cringe....
6 "Joel bar Hezron, sir," he managed finally.
7 "Your father know you're here?"
8 "N-no, sir."
9 "In trouble in the town, are you?"
10 "Oh, no."
11 "Then what do you want with me?"
12 Joel stood his ground. "I wanted to see you," he said, "because they say that someday you will drive the Romans out of Israel. When you do, I want to be with you."The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare; 1962 Newbery Medal winner
