Every Tuesday, I'll be posting the opening paragraph (maybe two) of a book I decided to read based on the opening paragraph (s). Feel free to grab the banner and play along. For today's First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intro, I'm featuring an intro to a book by a new to me author. Has anyone read this one?
2012 Henry Holt and Co.
"SHE SHOULD HAVE told him already about the church but she hadn't. The warnings were all there--he could name all of her siblings, and he looked at her too deliberately, and when he hugged her she was caught too long against his chest. Every morning she decided she would tell him, but every afternoon it was too tempting to go one more day, one more minute where he found a way to hold her fingers as she passed him a note. But now she knew he was going to ruin it all and ask her to the dance, she could feel it--she avoided him carefully but fussed with her hair, nearly sick with the twin terrors of him asking her or not asking her, not sure which end she should assign her hope."
What do you think? Would you keep reading?
