Welcome to The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice.


This is a really fun meme!

The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader and find a sentence or a few (no spoilers) that grabs you and post it.

Then go over to Freda’s Voice and leave your link so we can visit your 56!

My 56 for this week is from:

From The Grave

 Monster Or Die #1

  by Cynthia Reeg



Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy

My 56 from the eBook

“They call us misfits and say we don’t belong. But we know. We know we’ve as much monster blood running through us as any of them. There are different ways to monster.

I’m having fun with this so far. There are some really funny names for the characters. I keep grinning.

The book is free right now on Amazon. Just click on the cover to grab a copy.


Read on if you want to know more.


Monster is as monster does, but Frankenstein Frightface Gordon is totally the wrong shade of ghastly green—pale, baby blue, in fact—and he’s more concerned with keeping his pants neat and tidy than scaring the pants off his victims. But when a new law is passed to rid Uggarland of misfits such as Frank, he must decide if he will become the monster his parents can be proud of or be the monster he can be proud of. Trusting the monsterliest monster he knows, Frank looks to the grave and his dead grandmother to make his choice, entering into an adventure that will either seal his doom or prove he is truly monster enough.



Leave your link and I’ll drop by your 56.
