The Friday 56, The White Mary

* 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.

The book this week is The White Mary by Kira Salak. It is about Marika's trip to Papua New Guinea to search for her hero who may or may not be dead. I hope it is as exciting as it sounds. I just picked it up to start it today so I have no idea if it will be or not.

The sentence:

Marika walked closely beside Seb - as closely as she could without touching. Then, as they climbed up a hillside, his hand reached out casually, innocently, and took hold of hers.
