The Friday 56 (#21)


Rules:The Friday 56
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.

 The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice where I’ll post a sentence of two from page 56 of either the book I’m currently reading or a random book from my shelf. If you would also like to participate, click the link to the host’s blog page.


 I’m still on this novel and probably will be for some time. Finals week is coming up; there’s lots of studying to do. Wish me luck.

Everyone have a great weekend! 🙂

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – by Jenny Han

 

” ‘So you’re probably wondering what this is all about.’ I begin. And then I immediately falter. ‘It’s um, well, I wrote it a long time ago, and – ‘

‘You don’t have to explain.’

‘Really? You’re not curious?’

‘No. It was just really nice to get a letter like that. I was actually pretty honored.’

I let out a relieved sigh and sag against my locker. Why is Lucas Krapf just so exactly right? He knows how to say the perfect thing.

And then Lucas gives me a half grimace, half smile. ‘But the thing is…’ He lowers his voice. ‘You know I’m gay, right?’

‘Oh, right, totally,’ I say, trying not to sound disappointed. ‘No, I totally knew.’ So Peter was right after all.

Lucas smiles. ‘You’re so cute,’ he says, and I perk up again. Then he says, ‘Listen, can you not tell anybody, though? I mean, I’m out, but I’m not out out yet. You know what I mean?’

‘Totally,’ I say, super confident.

‘For instance, my mom knows but my dad only kind of knows. I haven’t outright told him.’

‘Got it.’ “

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – by Jenny Han

 

“I was pouring lukewarm tea out of the thermos and into cups when Josh climbed up on the fence and watched us. The month before, from the upstairs playroom, we’d watched Josh’s family move in. We’d hoped for girls, but then we saw the movers unload a boy bike and we went back to playing.

Josh sat up on the fence, not saying anything, and Margot was really stiff and embarrassed; her cheeks were red, but she kept her hat on. Kitty was the one to call out to him. ‘Hello, boy,’ she said.

‘Hi,’ he said. His hair was shaggy, and he kept shaking it out of his eyes. He was wearing a red T-shirt with a hole in the shoulder.

Kitty asked him, ‘What’s your name?’

‘Josh’

‘You should play with us, Josh,’ Kitty commanded.

So he did.

I didn’t know it then, how important this boy would become to me and to the people I love the most. But even if I had known, what could I have done differently? It was never going to be me and him.”

(pg. 56-57)
