First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros

Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where I share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book I am reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?
 
This week I'm featuring an intro from a book that I'll be starting over the long weekend.

Doubleday - 2013
"It was Friday Night, about nine weeks into the project. Tess's voice sounded normal, but I could see that she had been crying and her narrow face was pale.  For the first few minutes of the conversation, she leaned her head back against the wall behind her bed, gaze turned to the ceiling.  Then she righted it and looked straight at the camera.  Her eyes were as I'd never seen them:  both empty and terrified.  Mum sometimes had the same look, towards the end.

I'm scared she said."

Isn't the cover awesome? What do you think? Would you keep reading?
