Book Beginnings on Friday and The Friday 56

Book Beginning:

“Me name be Hannah O’Brien and I be seventy-six years old. Me first thing is an apology – me language is bad cos I lost it and had to learn again. But here’s me story and I be glad to tell it before I hop the twig.”

Page 56:

“It was a greyish colour, with sharp bits of bone and shells sticking out of it. The tigers sniffed it. The smell made their tails go stiff with joy. They were nibbling at it. I knew I had to wait me turn but I culdn’t wait. I grabbed it for meself.”

This week for Book Beginnings on Fridays and The Friday 56 I’ve selected Louis Nowra’s first book for the YA audience called ‘Into That Forest’.

  1. This definitely sounds very interesting. First I thought she was Irish, don't blame me but they do say 'me' instead of 'my' quite a lot. Although it sounds quite sexy when they do it and these tigers don't sound too good! Thanks for sharing, hop on over to My Friday Post if you have the time!Juli @ Universe in Words
