18774013Book: Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick.

Synopsis: Today is Leonard Peacock’s birthday. It is also the day he hides a gun in his backpack. Because today is the day he will kill his former best friend, and then himself, with his grandfather’s P-38 pistol.

But first he must say good-bye to the four people who matter most to him: his Humphrey Bogart-obsessed next-door neighbor, Walt; his classmate, Baback, a violin virtuoso; Lauren, the Christian homeschooler he has a crush on; and Herr Silverman, who teaches the high school’s class on the Holocaust. Speaking to each in turn, Leonard slowly reveals his secrets as the hours tick by and the moment of truth approaches.

The Rules:

  1. Grab a book, any book.
  2. Turn to page 56 or 56% in you E-Reader. (If you have to improvise, that’s okay.)
  3. Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
  4. Post it.
  5. Add your URL post below in the Linky. (Add the post URL, not your blog URL.)

The 56:

“I figured the woman was really deranged – I had simply picked a femme fatale to follow, there were surely better case studies to find, happier adults prone to sadness, and she was just an unlucky fluke – but the problem was that she sort of reminded me of Linda, who also thinks I’m a pervert.”
