Category: Friday’s Page 69

This one will be dedicated to a book’s page 69. I will post one or more sentences from the page that seem interesting/fun.

I started with this one in 2015 (May), and here is the backstory on how I got the idea: You all probably know that publishers often put something on the back to attract people. Something like turn to “insert page number”. Well, according to a writer’s 2006 book you should pick page 69 to determine if you want to read the book (Find Your Perfect Novel).

The audition had been all right, Lucy reflected in PE, as she stood on the rounders field keeping a lazy eye on the game. Not too scary, and she managed not to stammer by concentrating hard on her singing. It had been quite fun watching some of the boys… all trying to out-cool each other as potential leather-jacketed T-Birds. Suddenly an image of Sam entered her mind. Well, if she were honest, he’d entered her mind a few times – OK, a lot of times – since she’d seen him at the farm on Sunday. She was counting down the days until she’d see him again, even though the thought of talking to him made her stomach fall into her shoes.

Nobody responds. I think it’s a mistake, a wrong number or a robot, but then I hear the faintest, most distant street noise.
“Who is this?” I say. I’m still holding the baby picture in my other hand and all of the sudden the two things seem connected. I know that’s silly. I know it’s late and I’m scared and my mind is playing weird tricks on me. But I have this sense, this knowledge I can feel all over my body, deep in my bones, that I’m right. That this phone call means something. That the silent person at the end of the lin is trying to tell me something by not saying anything at all.
“Mom?” I whisper.
Whoever it is hangs up.

Tyler was still holding my hand. He hadn’t let go of it the entire ride home. “What if we just stay here?” he asked, staring up at the house. The sky had gone dark, the moon just visible above the trees, a spattering of stars beyond it.
“In the driveway?” I laughed.
“In this car. We could order pizza, tip the seats back, and sleep. Skip school tomorrow and listen to every CD in my glove compartment. Get Chinese food and have my little brother drop off some clothes. We’d only go inside to use the bathroom and the phone.”

“Um. No,” Maggie said. “If there’s a spider in my bathroom, that sucker’s going down.”
“Murderer,” Tanya muttered, with a smile on her face.
Maggie grinned back and pointed to herself. “Me? A spider murderer?” She nodded. “Yeah, I can definitely live with that label.”

He seemed reassured, foolishly, by my silence. “Seriously, though, what drew you to read law?”
I hesitated, then said, truthfully, “I wanted to fight for justice for the oppressed. Like Batman. Or you know, like Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird.”
Suresh sipped at his tea. “What area of law did your originally want to practice in?”
“International humanitarian law. You?”
“Criminal law.”
We both fell silent as we reflected on how far we’d deviated from our ideals.

But this Jeanie was not acting normally.
“Oh, I don’t knoooow,” she said as she dragged out the word “know”.
Willow’s eyes went wide. Jeanie was stuck in slow motion!
“I sound sooooo weird,” Jeanie exclaimed. “It’s like I’m a slooooth.”
Jeanie smiled lazily, then turned to stare out the window.

“Yeah, well, he’s never going to find out, is he?”
My marker falls out of my hand and down into the space between my bed and the wall. I expect him to say he’s sorry, but he doesn’t say anything at all, and the silence is weird, like he’s waiting for me to call him out for talking like that. But I can’t. I can’t even believe he said it in the first place.

I wanted to do a Christmas book, but I just barely have any books with Christmas/winter and those I had didn’t have a good page 69, so I picked one of my favourite graphic novels: 5 Worlds: The Sand Warrior! Click on the image if you want a bigger resolution!
