Friday 56: The Lost Boy

Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Storytime with Tonya and Friends. The rules for this meme are rather simple: (1) Grab the book nearest you - Right now, (2) Turn to page 56 and find the fifth sentence, (3) Post that sentence and few others plus this instruction. (4) Post a link along with your post back to the site mentioned earlier, (5) Remember, choose the book closest to you. And if possible, try not to include any spoiler in your teaser.

Don't you know all I talk about in my office is a cute little boy who is brave enough to tell me his secret?"
