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:

” 2001/Alia

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.
