the friday 56

The Friday 56

Rules:
*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 The Hazel Wood.


"Then the door of the shop slams open and this boy runs in. Eight or nine years old, pretty small. I grab up the book just in case, not actually thinking the kid would take it, or has any idea what it is. But the little shit ran up, sprayed something in my eyes--not mace, but like a cleaning product--and grabbed the book. I was so surprised I didn't keep a good grip on it. I ran after him, but it was too late. He got into a cab that was waiting and beat it."

I goggled at him. "Bullshit."

"Sadly, no."

"Why would he want that particular book? Why would a little kid even be in a rare bookstore?"

"I'm guessing someone paid him to steal it."
