The Friday 56, The Girl Who Stopped Swimming

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
*Post a link along with your post back to Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

I'm nice and early today and still waking up. Thank goodness for spell check or this would be unreadable. Anyway...
The closest book this week is The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jackson. I have to tell you. If a ghost showed up and led me to their dead body I don't think I would handle it well. But I guess I can understand why Laurel feels she needs to find out what happened. I'd kind of like to know myself. But no one tell me. I wouldn't want to ruin the ending.

The sentence:

At Laurel's baffled look, he explained, "It's a voice-over IP application. Gamers use it to coordinate attacks."

Ahhh... No, wait. I still don't know what he's talking about.

The storyline sounds delicious and spooky, but the 56, lol, that would not have hooked me. Will have to look this one up :)

Here’s my 56 offering.

I have to agree with Justine on this one!
