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 pick is from a book that will be released in (2) weeks, by an author I enjoyed in the past.

She was twenty-four years old and she sat where her coach told her to sit, beside him, on a thin white bench with the blue protective film still on it."
"Don't touch the door," he said. "It's alarmed."
Would you read on? Have you read, Little Bee , and if so, did you love it as much as I did?
