Friday Focus: The Friday 56 and Book Beginnings

 It's Friday . . . time to share book excerpts 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 an upcoming read, Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart.  The excerpts shared are from a hardcover edition I borrowed from the library.
 Genuine Fraud 

BeginningBegin here:
Third Week in June, 2017
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

It was a bloody great hotel. 

Page 56: "She was another person by the time the doors opened."

My thoughts:  The title and synopsis attracted me to this book, which I will be starting soon.  I've got a feeling it's going to be a page-turner.


From Goodreads:  From the author of the unforgettable New York Times bestseller We Were Liars comes a masterful new psychological suspense novel--the story of a young woman whose diabolical smarts are her ticket into a charmed life. But how many times can someone reinvent themselves? You be the judge.

Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat.
Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete.
An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two.
A bad romance, or maybe three.
Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate. The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains.
A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her.
A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.
