Friday 56 and Book Beginnings, Feb 28, 2014.

Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't dig for their favorite book, the coolest, or the most intellectual. They use the one they are currently reading.

Book: Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein

Book Beginnings:

I just got back from Celia Forester's funeral. I'm supposed to be writing up an official report for the Tempest she flew into the ground, since she's obviously not going to write it herself and I saw it happen.
Friday 56:
By the time we were over Notre Dame I was singing to myself again. The cabin was so noisy I thought no one would be able to hear me.
My thoughts: By page 56 the reader is just starting to understand how talented Rose, the narrator, is as a pilot and how dedicated she is to helping the Allies win WWII. At this point in the story the action is just starting to warm up and soon it takes a dramatic twist. I don't think that either of these quotes are good examples of how wonderful both this book and the writing are. (I'm almost finished with this book.)
