Book Beginnings #39

For Book Beginnings, Rose City Reader invites us to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.

For Friday 56, Freda's Voice asks you to turn to Page 56 in your book or 56% on your e-reader and pick a sentence. This is my first time

I am currently reading Tennis Shoes by Noel Streatfeild.
The Heaths lived at Tulse Hill. Their father was a doctor. He had not meant to be a doctor. He would have liked to have been a soldier; but in an accident he was shot through the leg.
I feel that this start is pretty typical of the author so I'm excited to continue. I am just starting this as I type, so I don't have any thoughts beyond anticipation and hope that it will be as good as the magnificent Ballet Shoes.
It was no good. She always dropped the third ball.
Honestly, I know nothing that's happening in this scene. I picked the first line at 56% on my kindle. But I can't wait to get properly stuck in.

  4. I've seen this book around but never read it. I have Spill Zone by Scott Westerfeld - a graphic novel - this week. Happy reading!
