The Friday 56

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.

I'm reading We Are Not Ourselves.

From Chapter 56:

For years, Connell had heard his father talk about how much he looked forward to teaching him to drive, but when he turned sixteen and got his learner's permit, he had to cajole his father into letting him behind the wheel. They drove through a whipping March wind to the parking lot in front of Macy's in the Cross-County Shopping Center. His father got out, went around to Connell's side and waved him to slide over. His father sat calmly as Connell practiced accelerating, breaking, turning, parking in a spot, and backing up. Once Connell worked up the nerve to venture from the lot to the streets, though, his father looked terrified.
