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. This is the book I'm reading right now:
Book Title:The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma
We went wild that hot night. We howled, we raged, we screamed. We were girls---some of us fourteen and fifteen; some sixteen, seventeen---but when the locks came undone, the doors of our cells gaping open and no one to shove us back in, we made the noise of savage animals, of men.Friday 56:
Here was another thing I'm not sure D'amour knew: The second fence was electrified.My thoughts: The Walls Around Us is a murder mystery with a horror element. I am currently halfway through the book and I do not have a clear idea of the crime or even the key players. Both of these quotes are from one narrator, Amber, a girl in the detention facility. She appears to play the role of observer. Though this book is not my usual cup of tea I am reading it because it has good reviews and I may want to include it on a list of YA books for a school project. I haven't decided yet.
(This is my second book in e-book format. The page numbers may not correspond to the pages in the print edition.)
