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.
I'm also taking part in Book Beginnings, a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader. The rules are pretty simple - you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires. Don't forget to link up your post's url with Rose City Reader.
This week I'm spotlighting one of my current reads, Only Human (Doctor Who: New Series Adventures #5) by Gareth Roberts. This is my fifth Doctor Who tie-in novel, and my second featuring the Ninth Doctor. It also includes Rose and Captain Jack. I'm only about 30 pages in so far and there's already plenty of timey-wimey fun!

On Saturday, our cat Dusty was giving the whole family too many wrong-feelings. She weed on the upholstery again. It's nice to have pets to stroke, and we do love Dusty, but she has been too naughty recently. She gets in the way. Later a man over the road tripped over her and broke his leg. That was inconvenient and the man needed a health-patch.
And then suddenly, as so often with the Doctor at her side, the last thing she could have imagined happened.
