The Friday 56 is a bookish meme hosted by Freda’s Voice.
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56.
*Find any sentence that grabs you.
*Link up at Freda’s site
Today’s sentence comes from Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
“Slowly but surely, everybody in the house began to starve.”
Not a line one would expect from a book like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is it?
