Book Beginnings & The Friday 56 The Girl With Borrowed Wings
Book Beginning is hosted by Rose City Reader. Where you share the first sentence of the book your reading, thoughts, impression, and inspiration from that. The Friday 56 by Freda's Voice. It is where you share a sentence from the 56th page or 56% of your ereader and thoughts/impression without spoiling.
This week is on The Girl with Borrowed Wings by Rinsai Rosetti.
"I am unlike most other people because I began, not in the body of my mother, but in the brain of my father."
This book starts out with a rather direct statement being completely honest and a bit redundant. You want to see what the character actually is, and what she means by being a brain child quite literally. How does this affect her life?
The Friday 56
"He didn't know that there was a full-fledged battle being fought on my back, between the imaginary wings and the itch where I could feel my father's eternally pointing finger digging into my skin."
This makes you wonder who this mysterious stranger is as he does not know her. What wings is she referring to as she struggles with some mental barricade put up by her father. Why is he so controlling? How does this girl deal with her imagination?
