Book Beginnings, the Friday 56 and Feature and Follow (24 July)

Book Beginnings is a meme hosted every Friday by Rose City Reader where you share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book,  or anything else the opener inspires.  Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

Confessions of a Queen B* (The Queen B*, #1)My Book Beginning is from Confessions of a Queen B* by Crista McHugh:

"In every high school there are two types of Queens Bs. The first type is the most obvious. With a collection of tiaras and an entourage of drones that follow her wherever she flitters, this Queen B practically rules the school (or so she thinks)."
The Friday 56 is a meme hosted every Friday by Freda's Voice.
The Rules:
*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.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It's that simple.

My Friday 56 is also from Confessions of a Queen B*:
" 'If you're going to start singing show tunes, I'm stopping the car right now and kicking you to the curb.' 'Oh, sweetie, if I wanted to torture you, I'd go all Justin Bieber on you.' "

This week’s Question:
What is your favourite movie?

This is such a hard question. I have so many favourites. My favourite childhood movie is The Princess Bride (those who already follow me have probably noticed this) and my favourite Disney movie is Pocahontas. Other notable mentions would be Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Dirty Dancing, Jurassic Park... I could go on for days.
