Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted each week by Rose City Reader. It’s a chance to share the first sentence or so of the book you are reading this week. You can check out others’ book beginnings here. I’m also going to link up with Carrie at Reading Is My Superpower for First Line Friday.
This week’s book beginning:
Americans love their Constitution. In seventeen-year-old Liberty Bell’s era it has become a myth.
Centuries after the Great Blackout obliterates the world’s digitized information, America’s history is forgotten. Only confused legends remain, written in The Americana, a book depicting a golden age where famous Americans from different eras lived and interacted with one another during the same time.
Raised on the stories and ideals from The Americana, Liberty Bell joins secret agent Antonio Ice on a quest for her country. But in the Old Forest, forgotten technologies are reawakening. Historic figures such as Albert Einstein, Harriet Tubman, and Thomas Jefferson are coming to life.
The source of their return, a mystery hidden since before the apocalypse, lies waiting for Liberty. Her knowledge of The Americana holds the key to unraveling the riddles of the past.
Will the American continent return to the freedom of Liberty’s forefathers? Or will it descend into a dark age of tyranny?The choices she makes will determine its fate. For, as The Americana says, “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it-and forfeit all coupons, discounts, and travel miles.”
Filled with quotations from exceptional Americans, here is a humorous and poignant celebration of America and its Constitution.
Are you going to keep reading? My review will be up this weekend. Stop back by and see what I thought of the book!

It’s designed to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, make new blogging friends, and gain followers.

Oct. 28th – Nov. 3rd – Have you ever experienced a blogging nightmare? If so, what was it? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
Like, an actual, while-I’m-sleeping nightmare? I don’t think so. If you’re talking a nightmare like, holy cats, why did I sign on for so many ARC reviews this week/month, then yes. Yes, I have. (I want to read All the Books. I have a tendency to overcommit if I’m not careful.)
