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:
Title: Flight by Sherman Alexie
Call me Zits. Everybody calls me Zits. That's not my real name, of course. My real name isn't important.
Friday 56 (actually 65 this week):
I wonder if this is Heaven. Maybe God sent me to Hell first. Maybe he made me watch Art kill Junior because I needed to learn from my mistakes.
Comments: Flight is one of the five-book collection by Alexie being read this year for Pierce County Reads. It is his third book I've read of his and, as with the other books, it is a combination of funny and tragic. This one ends on a very touching, poignant moment. And yes, it has to do with zits. Alexie is a Native American from the Spokane tribe. His writing always makes me squirm. It is so important to understand his point of view. I highly recommend him, especially his YA novel, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, though Flight is very good, too.
