Meme Sheep Returns to Say Bahhh and also: I have no icon for this book

A meme via stillsostrange!

1. Go to page 77 (or 7th) of your current ms
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.

If only I were on page 77 by now. Alas, 7 will have to suffice. (See! The people she got it from were on page 77. I am not on page 77 either. But I am closer than I thought! So now I am a) hanging out with Amanda and b) happier than I expected to be.)

"I don't care if it's not protocol," said Wally, for once not keeping her mouth shut. "I want to find Dad. I'm going to put him into my Girl Scout compass."
"Wally, you're not supposed to take stuff like that to Girl Scouts," I said automatically.
Mom pressed her lips together. She had already chewed all her lipstick off, probably hours ago. "Go get it," she said.

(Wally is the heroine's little sister Walpurgis, Q to her Bond. Her Girl Scout troop made their own compasses. Wally's doesn't find north. It finds...whatever Wally wants it to find. Except it doesn't find their dad....)
