First share the opening lines of your novel, then turn to page 56 (or 56%) and share a few lines!
This week's book is The Last Act of Hattie Hoffman by Mindy Mejia.
Beginning: "Running away sucked. Here I was, standing in the exact place I'd daydreamed about in math class so many times, right in front of the departures board at the Minneapolis airport, and every detail was just like I'd pictured."
56%: " 'I was lying on the bottom of the quarry for what felt like forever. There was no shade and the sun made me nauseated. I knew my dad was coming and that I had to lie to him, and I was convinced that God would strike me dead.' "
Thoughts: I'm really enjoying this novel so far, and how gorgeous is the cover!!!
Happy reading and have a lovely weekend!!
