The Friday 56 - Week 171

Welcome to Week 171!

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post to the Linky at Freda's Voice. Add the post url, not your blog url. It's that simple.

I sat on the swing, flicking paint chips, and watched Khayla and Kheelin try to keep up with Georgie and Sealy while they all ran around like fools, chasing leaves that were blowing off the trees. The whole while, I was thinking that this was turning into the worst birthday ever. Didn't anyone understand the importance of what day it was?

This is a middle grade novel that came to me unsolicited.


  1. Ah, yes the pain of adolescence. There are a few middle grade novels that are among my favorites. Have you read Jenny Han's Shug or Wendelin Van Draanen's Flipped? I love those books. Thank you for sharing.

    My Friday 56 post.

  2. Love that cover!
    Sounds like a birthday party turned into a pity party.

    Happy weekend!
