The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Find a quote from page 56.
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: Razorhurst by Justine Larbalestier
Tommy was a talker and didn't much like the other ghosts, so he was forever talking to Kelpie. That's how she divided them up: talkers and silent ones. Most ghosts were silent. Most ignored the living. Kelpie thought that was just as well.Friday 56:
Palmer was pacing and asking her questions about being a ghost. None of which she could answer with two of the living sitting right there. Was he daft? Kelpie was pretty sure he was.Comments: The story is set in Surrey Hills, a suburb of Sydney, Australia in the 1930s. Historically this was an area run by gangs and mobsters. Kelpie, a young, pre-teen orphan and street urchin, inadvertently gets herself involved with a gang at war with each other. Oddly she can see and hear ghosts and can communicate with them. So even though the story isn't really about ghosts, as in a horror or scary story, they play a prominent role. I am listening to the audiobook read by three Aussies: Rebekkah Rimmington, Fiona Hardingham, Davis Ligudzinski. I am enjoying it and their accents.
