The Friday 56: With the Fire on High

Grab a book, any book. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader. Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grabs you. Post it.

On my bedside is a picture of my mother and father holding hands. He’s wearing an Iverson jersey and she’s in straight-leg jeans and a bright-blue T-shirt with a smiley face over her large belly. I’m the lump under the smiley face. It’s the only picture I have of the three of us: my parents cheesin’ and in love and holding hands, and me fully formed inside her belly, knocking on the door of skin, impatient to get out before everyone left.

This is such a beautiful quote and it gives such a raw glimpse about the main character in the book in my opinion.
