The Key to Extraordinary by Natalie Lloyd

Book Beginnings on Fridays

“It’s a known fact that the most extraordinary moments in a person’s life come disguised as ordinary days.”

The Friday 56

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Post it.

“And then I felt a cold hand grab the neck of my hoodie and yank me backward. I screamed, and dropped the flashlight.”

Goodreads Summary: Everyone in Emma’s family is special. Her ancestors include Revolutionary War spies, brilliant scientists, and famous musicians–every single one of which learned of their extraordinary destiny through a dream.

For Emma, her own dream can’t come soon enough. Right before her mother died, Emma promised that she’d do whatever it took to fulfill her destiny, and she doesn’t want to let her mother down.

But when Emma’s dream finally arrives, it points her toward an impossible task–finding a legendary treasure hidden in her town’s cemetery. If Emma fails, she’ll let down generations of extraordinary ancestors . . . including her own mother. But how can she find something that’s been missing for centuries and might be protected by a mysterious singing ghost?

    I like the beginning and the 56 makes me curious about what’s going on and her safety. I like the sound of this book and love the cover. Here’s my Friday meme
