The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted over at Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple and go something like this.
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
3. Find any sentence, (or a few, just don’t spoil it)
4. Post it.
5. Add the post url, not your blog url to the Linky.
6. Tweet it #Friday56 (not an official Freda’s Voice rule)

“We think we’re so strong,” he explained. “Some people want to show how strong they are when they fight, they want to prove it by grinding the other person down.”
“We’re alive because we can be hurt; we’re alive because we can heal.”
PET pg. 57
