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: This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel
Once upon a time, Claude was born but first, Roo was born.Friday 56:
Over the years, kindergarten homework has gotten more...Rosie said 'intense'; Penn said 'asinine with an emphasis on ass.'Comment: I just started this book club selection today about a family's secret that their young son wants to be a girl. It is a very pertinent topic for today.
Very timely topic, I'll be interested to hear what you think once you are finished. Is this non-fiction?ReplyDelete
No, it is fiction. But you know what they say about fiction...Delete
Ooh, I heard an interview with the author of this one. It sounded intriguing. Hope you enjoy it.ReplyDelete
Interesting topic indeed. Great to see more mainstream trans fiction coming out.ReplyDelete
I agree, interesting topic and glad to see more of it. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Here's my current read : http://bit.ly/2qxXXYr
Have a good weekend!
A difficult topic to address.ReplyDelete

It does sound timely. My YA pick this week is Raging Sea by Michael Buckley. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
It is a big topic for today, but the TV exploitation of the subject is just too much! I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine . . . http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewsTLMReplyDelete
I have this book, so now I'm reminded that I need to read it! Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.ReplyDelete
I loved this book! One of the best I've read this year.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a fun read! Love the orange cover! Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Oh wow! That is interesting. And timely. Enjoy and thanks for the visit.ReplyDelete
The beginning reminds me of Winnie the Pooh but that 56 just made me 😂.ReplyDelete
I have a giveaway with my Friday post on my blog, hope you pop by and join in:
This author does have a transgender child though, doesn't she? I've started the book, but am struggling a bit with it. I like reading about sex as much as anybody, but...;)ReplyDelete
It looks like a fun read and like everyone else here I feel its very timely too! Hope you enjoy reading it!ReplyDelete
Here's my Friday Reads
This sounds like an interesting and inspiring book! Thanks for sharing it. :)ReplyDelete
Kindergarten homework? I think I might agree with the Penn on the issue. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
I was surprised to read about kindergarten homework at all, but then discovered that my own great nephew, who is at nursery and under 2, has objectives and targets assigned to him, with a record card of his achievements against target!
A very 'on trend' subject for a book right now, although I don't know whether I am surprised that Claude wants to become a girl, knowing that he is the youngest of 5 male siblings, or not! I guess things aren't quite as linear, or black and white as I would imagine them to be!
Probably not one for me, but an interesting post nonetheless :)
I haven't heard of this one, but I do like the sound of that 56. :)ReplyDelete
