The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple – turn to page 56 in your current read (or 56% in your e-reader) and post a few non-spoilery sentences.
Right now I’m reading Island of Exiles, which is really cool because bi/pansexuality is considered the norm, and there are three genders – male, female, and ebet, whose pronouns are ey/eir/em. It’s a great book to read for Pride Month!
This little exchange is between the main character and her brother.
“Why are we out here?” Yorri asks as we move. “Do you have a plan?”
“Yes. I’m going to teach you how to be silent.”
Yorri raises an eyebrow. “You’re going to kill me?”
I laugh, and then laugh harder when he rolls his eyes, barely able to suppress his smirk. “Maybe I should,” I taunt. “It might be easier.”
This book is really fun so far!
