* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56. * Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
* Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Who can resist reading a book with a leading character named after them? I know I can't. And that is how I came up on this book. An excerpt from Amanda/Miranda by Richard Peck - pg 56

"... It's a game, keepin' ahead of her commandments, but you can't win it."

I read this book as a young adult, seeing it on the shelves of my local library. Now I have a copy of my own that I snagged at a local book exchange!
"Your future lies beyond a mountain of ice, where you will die, and live again." The wisewoman's prophecy disturbs Miranda, a maidservent who bears an uncanny resemblance to her rich and arrogant mistress, Amanda Whitwell. Thrust into a tangled web of lies by Amanda, Miranda watches helplessly as one fateful night, a prophecy once foretold becomes reality... aboard the Titanic.


Isn't it lovely to go back and read books we loved as a young adult?

I haven't read this book but that's a great line!

You can find my 56 HERE

Sounds like a great book.

How cool is it to reread old faves or discover them.

What a retro cover... love it.

Thanks so much for delving into my head. It's scary in here sometimes, so it is nice to have company! Don't step on the zephyr...
