The Friday 56: The Last Orphans by N.W. Harris



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.


The wind howled, and the hangar creaked. Shane knew how easy a tornado could rip the sheet metal building to shreds. He scanned the hangar, trying to think of a safe place for the kids to take refuge. The best idea he could come up with was to have them crawl under the buses, though a big enough twister would toss the Freightliners around like plastic toys.

  1. Hmmm....Not sure I'd want to hide under the buses. I heard once that the best thing to do, if you are outside, it to lay in a ditch or flat to the ground. Either way, I never want to have to test it. Thanks for your 56!

    1. They aren't in situation where they have much of a choice. I hope I never have to test it!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This sounds like a situation that will define a lot of people and Shane sounds like the kind of leader I would want to have around.

    1. Yes, and I'd say he's done a pretty good job of it considering. :)

  3. Reading about storms always scares me a little, but I have to know what happens, so I keep reading. Thanks for sharing.

    1. It's an intense thrill-ride for sure, and it's not all about stormy weather. :)

  5. That's a great excerpt! There's probably not a good place for them to seek shelter, especially in a metal hangar. This sounds like a thrilling story.
