The Friday 56: Mermaid

This meme brought to you by Freda’s Voice!

We’ve adopted a new meme! Rules for The Friday 56 are simple:

  • 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.

Won’t this be fun?!

Our first quote comes from page 56 of this past week’s guilty-pleasure read, Mermaid, by Carolyn Turgeon. (Can you tell I’m on a mermaid kick?)

Crown Publishing Group, 2011, 240 pages

The beach was deserted, rock-ridden, white with snow. She pulled herself onto the shore, dragging her body across the rocks, and stretched out her tail before her. For a moment, she was dazzled as the pale light hit her own body. How odd – the greens and blues that glittered from her tail, in the light. She held up her arms and laughed as they changed color. Maybe she would stay here forever, she thought, live on crabs she plucked from the rocks.

I have tried raw crab. It’s not that good.

Happy Weekend, friends!

– Deborah
