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:

Meddling Kids

  by Edgar Cantero



Genre:  Horror

My 56 from the hardcover.

Kerri: You’ve been in jail? What for?

Andy: Nothing serious. A street fight. Collateral damage…I accidentally damaged what turned out to be a congressman’s car… With the congressman inside…. By throwing the congressman’s son through the windshield.

Andy has some anger issues. LOL

I wish you could see the cover for the print copy. It’s all bright, florescent colors. Looks like it will glow in the dark.


Read on if you want to know more.


1990. The teen detectives once known as the Blyton Summer Detective Club (of Blyton Hills, a small mining town in the Zoinx River Valley in Oregon) are all grown up and haven’t seen each other since their fateful, final case in 1977. Andy, the tomboy, is twenty-five and on the run, wanted in at least two states. Kerri, one-time kid genius and budding biologist, is bartending in New York, working on a serious drinking problem. At least she’s got Tim, an excitable Weimaraner descended from the original canine member of the team. Nate, the horror nerd, has spent the last thirteen years in and out of mental health institutions, and currently resides in an asylum in Arhkam, Massachusetts. The only friend he still sees is Peter, the handsome jock turned movie star. The problem is, Peter’s been dead for years.

The time has come to uncover the source of their nightmares and return to where it all began in 1977. This time, it better not be a man in a mask. The real monsters are waiting.

    This does sound like a fun story. It makes me wonder about the grown-up lives of lots of my favorite kid mystery characters. Whatever did Trixie Belden become? This week I’m spotlighting Lure of Oblivion by Suzanne Wright – an urban fantasy from my review stack. Happy reading!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      You get a pretty good idea about the younger version of these character’s and it was fun to see them dealing with the same problem as adults.

  3. Hope your liking this one! I have it to review but just not gotten to it yet. So behind.

  4. Oh, my, this one looks like a book that could grab you and never let go. Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

  5. Haha… I like that you can;t decide if it’s great or weird. At least it’s holding your interest.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      It’s definitely holding my interest. I have a feeling writing the review will be a challenge. LOL

  6. Karen says:

    This was already on my wishlist and now I want it even more! Thanks for sharing!

  7. LOL What a moron. Sounds like a great read though!
    Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      All of these kids went through some crazy stuff and didn’t come out of it without damage. They sure are different as adults.

  8. Ashley S. says:

    That cover really draws me in… and then that teaser! Sounds so good! Thanks for sharing and visiting my blog! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

    I keep seeing this book everywhere. I’m going to have to break down and get it.

  10. bevbou says:

    Looks like a wonderful read – thanks for sharing it, and for the visit.

  11. I keep seeing this book, and it was on sale recently, but I don’t know if it is something I would like. I will be looking for your review. ☺

    • fuonlyknew says:

      The title is a bit misleading, I think. It’s more about the character’s returning to the scene as adults. I’m struggling with how to review it now. LOL
