Friday Focus: The Friday 56 & Book Beginnings #51

It's Friday . . . time to share excerpts from one of my current reads with:
  • Book Beginnings on Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, where bloggers share the first sentence or more of a current read, as well as initial thoughts about the sentence(s), impressions of the book, or anything else that the opening inspires.  
  • The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an ebook), find one or more interesting sentences (no spoilers), and post them.
Today I'm featuring:
Elizabeth Is Missing 

"Maud?  Was I boring you so much that you'd rather stand outside in the dark?"
Chapter 1
"You know there was an old woman mugged around here?" Carla says, letting her long, black ponytail snake over one shoulder.  "Well, actually, it was Weymouth, but it could have been here.  So you see, you can't be too careful.  They found her with half her face smashed in."
56% of Ebook: I waited for him to say sorry for the swearing, but he didn't.  Instead he gulped down the rest of his drink and stood up.

Which book are you reading now or about to start?
