The Friday 56 #12

I am not having much reading time, and so I'm only about halfway through my current read, and then I'll have to start another one tomorrow for a tour post on Monday.  So, once again this week I'm going to participate in Friday 56, sponsored by Freda's Voice.  Here are the rules:

Rules:

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It's that simple.

Here is my post for the week:
 
 "I've never seen her like that.  It was scary, Jules," he said. "She told us we had to throw the trunk in the water, and when we told her we couldn't do that, she sent me to go get lighter fluid from the supply trailer.  We carried that thing way back behind a bunch of Dumpsters.  Where she made us torch it.  The smell of the leather...it was awful.  And she was chanting something weird under her breath.  I guess in Italian.  Or Latin maybe."  He shivered in the fan's breeze."

You can probably tell there is a bit of superstition in this book about the circus.  And something bad had to be destroyed because of it.

  1. What was in that trunk and why did it need to be destroyed? I'm curious! Hope you're enjoying the book. (The title reminds me of an old movie, "Bird on a Wire.")
    My Friday post features DEAR SUGAR.

    1. The burning has to do with the people in the story who believe there are magic or good and bad luck in objects.
