'The Adventures of Vivian Sharpe, Vegan Superhero'

Posted May 16, 2012 by Megan Rondeau

Seeing as how The Avengers has taken over the world—Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, you stole my heart—I thought it was time to introduce a superhero of another kind. Meet Vivian Sharpe, vegan superhero!

From the mind of vegan activist Marla Rose comes the tale of a young girl whose life is forever changed after receiving a visit from a “pig spirit” during the night. After that, a ham sandwich is no longer just lunch meat between two slices of bread—it’s the flesh of a once-living, breathing animal, one who was standing in her bedroom the night before! The strange occurrences don’t stop there, and as 15-year-old Vivian Sharpe transforms, it’s up to her to uncover the truth about the ecological disaster threatening her town.

    i also live in a very small community outside of town, and we live next to a creek, i love going out over by the creek as well to read. i can watch the salmon swim up the river to their spawning spots, and sometimes ill even catch a glimpse of bears, deer, or other critters. so cute :)

    in my backyard we have a beautiful rock garden my mom works on, covered in lava rock, shrubs, cherry trees, etc. there is a huge rock i love to sit on under the shade of the tree, admiring the smell of lavender and watching the bumble bees get their pollen. It’s such a wonderful place to read my books :)

    I am lucky enough to live near the beach, so I love to go there with a chair and a big sunhat.

    My favorite reading destination is in my backyard with my five beautiful dogs to keep me company, along with the chirping of the birds and the rustle of the leaves due to creatures like lizards and squirrels. Possibly a vegan frappuccino in my hand. If not the backyard, then maybe the park or a little vegan restaurant that isn’t too loud. :)

    My favorite place to read is outside in my backyard. I have a garden out there that’s really pretty and a hammock right above it.c: Me and my dog usually just swing on it and I read my favorite books. 😀

    I always look forward to the summer, ’cause I live in the northeast with my vegan superhero boyfriend and the eight cats and two dogs we are so honored to live with — and my favorite thing to do is to swim in the ocean. Since the cats don’t like to swim or travel (:o)) Dave and I bring the doggies camping and swimming many weekends in the summer to one of the very few beaches that “allow” dogs. I’m so grateful that it is SUCH a BEAUTIFUL beach and that we can bring our two girls. <3 Though I miss the kitties tremendously, I am always SO happy to see them when we get home! :o)
