the well written - jerry spinelli

"Did you know there's a country with officially designated 'enchanted places'?"

"No," I said.  "Where would that be?  Oz?"


"Imagine that."

"I'm ignoring your sarcasm.  I think it would be neat if we had that here.
You'd be walking or riding along, and there would be this stone marker
with a brass plate: 'Enchanted Site.  U.S. Department of Interior.'"

"We'd litter it up," I said.

She stared at me, her smile gone.  "Would we?"

I felt bad, as if I had ruined something.
