Today I grabbed The Atomic Weight of Secrets or the Arrival of the Mysterious Men in Black by Eden Unger Bowditch. I have the eGalley on my computer from NetGalley and Bancroft Press. This book was published on March 15. I was intrigued by the title and thought it sounded like something I would enjoy. 

There were two things the scientist knew for certain. One, he had only seconds to change the world. And, two, if he took too long, all his efforts might be for nothing. 
Page 56, Sentence 5:
It's all our fault.


  1. Wow! I'm very curious about this book, now. What a cover!


  2. Very mysterious 56! Love the cover!

    Thanks for participating!

  3. Oh, I loved sentence 5 of your Friday 56... How often do we use it :)

  4. Oh, interesting cover! And I wonder what he did that makes him think it was their fault.
    Great Friday 56!

  5. Those are some great lines! Brings some anticipation to the reading!

    Thanks for participating in Book Beginnings!
