Friday, er, Saturday Quotes, October 4th

The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice

I'm reading....


Book: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton

Book Beginning:
PROLOGUE. To many, I was myth incarnate, the embodiment of a most superb legend, a fairy tale. Some considered me a monster, a mutation. To my great misfortune, I was once mistaken for an angel. To my mother, I was everything.
Friday 56:
I've been told things happen as they should: my grandmother fell in love three times before her nineteenth birthday. My mother found love with the neighbor boy when she was six. And I was born with wings, a misfit who didn't dare to expect something as grandiose as love. It's our fate, our destiny, that determines such things, isn't it?
My thoughts/comments: Another YA book being considered for our Mock Printz list. I have only just started it. I'm only five pages in but so far I am hooked by the voice of the narrator.
