The Friday 56 is a weekly feature hosted by Freda’s Voice. The aim is to share a few sentences of a book (whether it’s one you’re currently reading or not) so other people might be enticed to pick it up.
Here’s the rules:
– Turn to page 56 or 56% in your ebook
– Find any sentence – or a few, just don’t spoil it
– Post it
– Add the URL of your post to the Linky on Freda’s most recent post
“Sometimes my parents got mistaken for their own assistants, or people think they’ve stumbled into the wrong meetings, or their assistants think they know better than my parents do and it becomes a whole thing, even though both of them are amazing at what they do, or they wouldn’t have gotten to where they are to begin with.”
That was from page 56 of the paperback edition of The Black Kids by Christina Hammonds Reed which I am currently reading.
I haven’t read this one yet, but ugh, that excerpt sounds so frustrating. Seems like this book tackles some important issues.
Here’s my Friday post.
I’ve heard of The Black Kids before, but I haven’t read it. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it. Enjoy your current read!
