The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice.
Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't select their favorite, coolest or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading.
Book: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
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.
