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---

Grace hadn't really thought too much about homecoming. She knew she'd go, though.Friday 56:
'Well, I guess the high was meeting Maya. And she's normal, I mean, at least she's not homicidal or anything.'Comment: Three teens discover that they are siblings they didn't know about since they were all put up for adoption as babies and adopted to different families.

This book won the National Book Award for Young Adult Literature.
