The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted over at Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple and go something like this.
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
3. Find any sentence, (or a few, just don’t spoil it)
4. Post it.
5. Add the post url, not your blog url to the Linky.
6. Tweet it #Friday56 (not an official Freda’s Voice rule)
This weeks Friday 56 is part of the TBR Triple Dog Dare. I received this as an ARC from Netgalley and had forgotten about it. When I was trying to decide which books to include in the Dare, I decided to read this galley that had been sitting there for several months.
After the dismal meal, we dropped Re Myungsun on Thirty-second and Broadway, where he was meeting a friend for a drink. one of us was to return to the city to pick him up after he was done. On the drive back to Flushing, Mary complained about our grandfather’s comment on her round face. Hannah pointed out that it was compliment: she had the kind of classic face Koreans preferred. “Thats not what my friends from Seoul say,” Mary retorted bitterly. Her chubby cheeks had a rosy tint. She had big eyes that were reduced to slivered moons when she smiled. It was a face more cute than beautiful. Hannah told her daughter to spend less time worrying about her face and more time worrying about her body.
