The Enchanted Rose

By Nadia Nader

Book Beginnings On Friday:

" Exactly a month before, my mother had died. And now I was on a bus, being sent to live with strangers. Ever since my father had told me he was sending me away, a numb feeling had settled into me. " ( Chapter 1 )

The Friday 56

" Should I have been friendly with her? " I wrinkled my nose in distaste. My encounter with her may have been brief, but I had a gut feeling when it came to people, and my gut had not liked Allison one bit. " ( Pg 56 )

What is you Book Beginnings & 56 for this week?


  1. Sounds interesting - I'm wondering what happened in that 56. Thanks for sharing! :)

    Check out my 56 with Book Beginnings.

  2. Sounds interesting. I'm curious about the age of the character and why her father is sending her away. I hope Allison isn't the person she's being sent to!
    My Friday post features MIDDLE-AGED CRAZY.

  3. How can the remaining parent send his child away. So sad.

  4. That is off to a great start! I am going to look this up on amazon. I already feel bad for the character. Great choice. I hope you're enjoying this (new follower; I love indie books too)

  5. I'm also curious about these characters, but I'm not too sure it's one for me. I have a problem with trusting YA books not to let me down and I can't seem to get over that hurdle with most of them! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!
