The Friday 56 (January 24)

So I'm trying something new here, this Friday 56 (more info at 

Here are the rules, straight from the source!

*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.

I'm going to be doing Ungifted by Gordon Korman (which I reviewed at - sorry about the long links, I'm working on getting HTML working properly).

Here are my sentences:

"Hi, Donovan," Heather addressed me. "Haven't seen you for a few days. Were you sick?"
"Donovan's a genius now," Sanderson supplied. "He goes to the gifted Academy."

Do you have a Friday 56? Post it below, or a link if you have a blog! And feel free to browse my big ole' blog (which isn't truly that big, but will be someday).


  1. Welcome to Friday56. You'll discover a lot of good books on this meme.
    The cover on your post really made me curious about the story. Is this a YA book?
    Here's the link to my Friday post: PICTURING PERFECT.

    1. Argh, I forgot to post a book description! Yeah, it's YA. A favorite I got for Christmas, actually. :)

  2. Is he really a genius? Sometimes you can be gifted without being a genius. :-)

    Happy weekend!

    1. Actually, he's not even gifted. I forgot to post the book description, but my review at has a plot summary. Basically, Donovan got into the gifted Academy through a mistake (something Sanderson knows, but Heather doesn't).
