Welcome to The Friday 56, a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice.
These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.
Since I'm participating in the #ReadingCram Chills and Thrills Readathon (starting today), I'll use my first read for it!
I took an involuntary step back but stopped dead when the dogs started growling.
