First Line Fridays, which I first encountered on “Carla Loves to Read,” and originally started on “Hoarding Books,” is a post I could relate to. I love reading the first lines of a new book or sharing the first lines of one I’ve already begun. Here are the first few lines of Wendy Mills’ novel, All We Have Left:
Travis draws my face into his chest as the smoke engulfs us.
The other tower fell, it fell straight down like a waterfall of concrete and steel, and, Oh God, help me, please help me, because is this one going to fall too? “
Turning to the back cover, I read, “A haunting and heart-wrenching story of two girls, two time periods, and the one event that changed their lives–and the world–forever.”
I am soooo ready to read this YA novel.
