The Friday 56

* 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 this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.

* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

The closest book to me today is not American Gods (because it's in my purse!)
So the closest one to me is actually an older book called "Go Ask Alice"

"It felt like being a child again and trying to swim in the Great Salt Lake."

Not really interesting out of context but the character is actually talking about how it made her feel to eat a peanut while under the influence of drugs. The book is written in diary format and is "the actual story of a desperate girl on drugs and on the run who almost made it." At least thats what the back cover says. I read this one a long time ago but picked it up at a book sale we are having at work to benefit the American Heart Association. So I might read it again soon.

This site here has a great little article about the book.

I read this high school and absolutely loved it! We appear to have similar tastes.

I didn't realize it is a true story. Thanks for doing Friday 56 and visiting me.
