Book Beginnings on Friday is hosted by Rosecityreader and The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, visit their blogs!

Book beginning:

As the bus veers onto the narrow bitumen road, Finn turns up her music, blocking out the noise so she can take her in new surroundings.

Page 56:

Around them, spidery-lush ferns huddle on the banks, while trees battle for space in the sky above. Willa lingers a moment so she can take it in. She thinks of her grandmother, who never wanted to go anywhere. Never wanted to travel. Never really left the state. Willa thinks of all the things she hasn’t gotten to know because of it. All the places she’s never seen. Beautiful, secret places like this, Places that give Willa a soft ache. Willa wants to discover each and every one of them.

      I hadn’t heard of this book either until I stumbled across it on Goodreads. I started reading it then realised it’s based where I live in Melbourne, Australia! That’s also where the author is from, I found it amazing cause I don’t think I’ve read any books from authors who live in Melbourne!
