Book Beginnings: Get Even by Gretchen McNeil *AD - Gifted

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.

I am currently reading Get Even by Gretchen McNeil (gifted copy).
Get Even by Gretchen McNeil cover
Bree sat back against the chain-link fence, bouncing her tennis racket lightly against the toe of her black Converse. "Why do we still have physical education in school?"
I was sent a free review copy of Get Even by Gretchen McNeil.

This first line is a total mood. I hated Physical Education in school so I feel like I have a bond with Bree already.

I am literally just starting this book as I type, and I'm excited to see how it will go. I think I'm going to enjoy it!

Olivia kept her distance as she followed Margot through pockets of lunching underclassmen, past the science building, to the courtyard outside the boys' locker room. It was completely deserted except for one person.
This is from page 56 in my finished copy.

This is the first lines of chapter nine, so not too far in to the story. Luckily I didn't see any spoilers as I flicked through to the Friday 56 haha.

I'm excited to watch the TV show after I've read the book too, it's all on iPlayer.

What are you reading this week?

  4. I hated PE in high school so I relate to that opening, lol. As and adult, I see the value of PE but I still don't enjoy it. :D

    Happy reading and have a good weekend!
