First Chapter First Paragraph ~ Tuesday Intros


Every Tuesday, I'll be posting the opening paragraph (sometimes maybe a few ) of a book I decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along.  

This week's selection is from a book that I hope to start this week. Jacqueline Sheehan's,  Lost and Found was a book  I enjoyed in the past. I do need a little break from Stephen King's, The Stand - 23% completed according to my Kindle -- every time some coughs or sneezes I'm feeling a bit creeped-out)

Picture This; Jacqueline Sheehan
(William Morrow - May 2012)

(Chapter 1 - Natalie)

"Natalie had seen more therapists in her life than she could remember.  She couldn't remember a time without them.  Therapists come with the territory in foster care, along with caseworkers and a slew of people who control where you live, where you go to school, and when and if you get medical care. And here's what they're good for: getting a new foster family when a kid has been stuck with whack jobs that's what."

  13. I read Bitterblue last week as a break from paranoia-inducing The Stand. This week, I'm alternating with The Flight of Gemma Hardy.

  14. Hang in there with The Stand - at least you know that everyone will eventually sort themselves into those who die and those who don't. On that cheery note, have they left New York yet? That was the scariest part for me.
