The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Orphan Monster Spy (Orphan Monster Spy #1) by Matt Killeen



On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, and Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader.  For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. 


Happy Friday everyone!  This week I'm spotlighting one of my current Wayward-A- Thon books, Orphan Monster Spy (Orphan Monster Spy #1) by Matt Killeen.  This sounds like my kind of YA historical thriller and so far it's pretty great. 

Beginning:

August 28, 1939

Finally, the car came to a stop.  With difficulty, Sarah opened her eyes, blinked to clear her vision, and looked up from her hiding place in the footwell.

56:

Sarah had grown up in some luxury, even if it had been fading, slipping away in pieces her whole life.
