Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Reads! Today I am sharing a few quotes from You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. It has been a while since I have read a thriller and this one is an exciting read so far .
Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share quotes (the first sentence, or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader. Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post.

She wants to belong, but her life is so isolated.
You probably don’t know anyone like the Moore sisters.
They have an unbreakable circle of friends.
They live the most glamorous life.
They always get what they desire.
Shay thinks she wants their life.
But what they really want is hers.
Book Quotes: You Are Not Alone
Numbers never lie. Statistics, charts, percentages — they don’t contain hidden agendas or shades of gray. They’re pure and true. It isn’t until people start meddling with them, spinning and shaping them, that they become dishonest.
On my eleventh birthday, which fell on a Saturday, my mom took me shopping at the local mall. She told the saleswoman at Lord & Taylor that I needed a special outfit for a special occasion. I wasn’t the kind of girl who dreamed about pink ruffles or tulle- I preferred soccer and math puzzles.
I have only read a handful of co-authored books and You Are Not Alone is one that has a seamless writing style. I would not have guessed that there were two authors for this book. Shay is a perfect main character and I am on the edge of my seat!
