Friday 56

Jellicoe Road - Melina Marchetta

Friday 56 is a game of randomness. Today, I got Melina Marchetta - an author that is new to me, but about whom I've heard great things. Page 56:


I can't see their faces because it's too dark but they know I'm lying. I lie all the time about those three days. Probably because I can't explain it. It reeks of supernatural bullshit and hunches. It stars the boy in the tree in my dreams who took me by the hand and made me stand on a branch and asked, "What can you see?"


What a fantastic quote. It totally makes me want to read the book.
