Freaky in Fresno | First Line Friday + The Friday 56

The Friday 56 is hosted weekly by Freda's Voice.
First Line Friday is hosted weekly by Hoarding Books.

Happy Friday!

I love surprise book mail, and this book is one such recent arrival. While the cover initially put me off a bit, I do love Freaky Friday, so I'm definitely looking forward to getting into this story soon(ish).


First Line: I nearly have an out-of-body experience as I watch Jake lean in to kiss me.

From Page 56: With that, the four of us follow each other through the arched front doorway of the concession shack, while my ears continue ringing from the ... well ... whatever the heck just happened.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Ricki has one goal: save the Starlight Drive-in movie theater from going dark forever. Okay, make that two goals … she may also want a first kiss from her cinema-rescuing partner and major crush, Jake. Lana definitely has only one goal: grow her online makeup channel to keep her momager off her back, even if the posts attract ugly internet trolls.

The two cousins couldn’t be more different, but their opposite personalities come crashing to a head when their aunt gifts the girls a vintage cotton-candy-pink convertible. To share. Ricki wants the convertible for the drive-in’s grand reopening, but it’s the same day as Digifest, a huge event where Lana needs to shine. After a major fight and a minor electric shock while wrestling over the wheel, Ricki wakes up as Lana, and Lana wakes up as Ricki.

Ricki and Lana have only a day to un-Freaky Friday themselves, a task made even more difficult as they try to keep up appearances on Lana’s channel and with Ricki’s hopefully-soon-to-be-kissed crush. But it turns out experiencing a day as each other—with a mini road trip in the Skylark and the Chihuahua wrangling it entails—may be the one thing that help the cousins see each other and themselves more clearly.

From Laurie Boyle Crompton, author of Pretty in Punxsutawney, comes Freaky in Fresno, perfect for fans of Mary Rodgers and Morgan Matson.

  2. Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing the first lines from A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson: "Anne Norris knew two things for certain. Some things could be forgiven. And some things most certainly could not."

    Today on my blog I'm sharing the first line from The Art of Rivers by Janet Ferguson: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/08/29/first-line-friday-99/. Currently I'm finishing up Finding Miss Enderly by Joanna Davidson Politano. I'll share a line from that book here. 🙂

    "As we hurried through the hallway, his grip on my arm tightened until I half expected to hear my bones snap."

    Hope you have a great weekend filled with awesome reading time. 🙂❤📚

  4. Happy Friday!

    I shared the first few lines of my current read Kingdom of Souls by Rena Barron on my blog. But, here, I’ll share the first lines of a book I recently finished – City of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty.

    “He was an easy mark.

    Nahri smiled behind her veil, watching the two men bicker as they approached her tall. The younger one glanced anxiously down the alley while the older man – her client – sweated in the cool dawn air. Save for the men, the alley was empty; fajr had already been called and anyone devout enough for public prayer – not that there were many in her neighborhood – was already ensconced in the small mosque at the end of the street.”

    Hope you enjoyed that. Have a great weekend!

  6. Sorry I didn't get around yesterday! The book I shared on my blog this week was In the Shadow of Denali by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse but I am now currently reading Out of the Ashes which is the next book in the series. I just recently started but I'll share the first line from chapter 2 here: "Gazing down at the coffin that housed his father's physical body, Jean-Michel counted the scoops of dark soil as they hit the lid and began to cover its surface." Hope you have a great weekend with plenty of quality reading time! :)

  7. This sounds like such a fun read! A pink convertible! My daughter would love one of those--but not until she's much older. Haha. I hope you enjoy this one. Have a great weekend, Hallie.

  8. Happy Labor Day Weekend! My first line is from A Love So Real (New Hope Falls Book 1) by Kimberly Rae Jordan:

    "Elijah McNamara gave the lightbulb one final gentle turn then glanced down at the man holding the ladder for him."
