Book Beginnings and Friday 56: Ghost Hunters

BookBeginnings (a la Rose City Reader)

“No one saw the girl die. It was just a little too early, a morning still too dark, first light barely warming the edge of the sky.”

First Impression: My wife has a read a few of Blum’s non-fiction books and loves them, swears they read as well as fiction. I can see what she means from this opening.

The Friday 56 is a weekly blog meme hosted by Freda’s Voice. Join in every Friday, the rules are simple.

Rules: *Grab a book, any book. *Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader.

*Find any sentence (or a few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.

*Post it. *Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.
