Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda’s Voice. I noticed these memes and thought it would be interesting to do both. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. This is the book I’m currently reading.
Book of Spells by Kate Brian
Even at the tender age of sixteen, Elizabeth Williams was the rare girl who knew her mind. She knew she preferred summer to all other seasons. She knew she couldn’t stand the pink- and yellow- floral wallpaper the decorator had chosen for her room. She knew that she would much rather spend time with her blustery, good-natured father than her ever-critical, humorless mother – though the company of either was difficult to come by. And she knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that going away to Billings School for Girls was going to be the best thing that ever happened to her.
“I told you that you should have turned back.” the same low voice from the tunnel whispered. Eliza’s breath caught and she whirled around. But no one was there.
