Topic: It by Stephen King
The book starts off in 1957 with little Georgie Denbrough following his paper boat through the flooded streets of Derry. Then the story jumps back to when the boat is being made. Georgie's older brother, stuttering Bill (as his classmates call him) is helping him create his boat. Georgie needs to get the wax from the cellar but he is paralyzed with fear because he thinks that when he goes for the power switch a hairy monster will grab him and drag him down. He goes to flick the switch and to his demise no power. The storm had knocked out the power. This means that he has to brave it out or leave his brother disappointed. He goes descends into the cellar and retrieves the wax without getting eaten. Back to Georgie chasing his boat when all of a sudden his boat goes down a gutter. Unexpectedly Georgie sees a pair of eyes look up at him. At first Georgie assumes that a house cat got blown into the gutter but he realizes that is false when it starts to talk to him. Shortly after it speaks to him he sees that it is fact a clown. It introduces itself as Mr. Bob Gray, also known as, Pennywise the Dancing Clown and he offers his boat back. Unwisely Georgie reaches down to grab his boat. Within forty five seconds Georgie is dead. Dave Gartner arrived to see what happened and he is horrified by the sight of George's lack of a limb. The chapter ends here. I think that most people when seeing a clown in a sewer would be a little more weirder out than Georgie. When I was little I use too have the exact same fear as Georgie so I find it easy to relate.
