The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): American Panda by Gloria Chao


On Friday's I take part in two 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 Mythothon reads, American Panda by Gloria Chao.  This has been on my radar for awhile and it's refreshing for a YA book to feature a college student as the lead.

Beginning:

The stench of the restaurant's specialty walloped my senses as soon as I entered.

56:

With a few fingers, I grabbed the cup so gingerly I almost dropped it.
