First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - North of Boston; Elisabeth Elo

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? Today's pick---

North of Boston; Elisabeth Elo
Pamela Dorman Books/Penguin
2014

"He was a loser,"Tomasina says, head lolling. "But he was a good loser. " A fifth of Stolichnaya has put her in a nasty, forgiving mood. I'm tempted to take a few shots myself to medicate my guilt and survivor's guilt. But someone has to stay sober for Noah.

  3. Interesting, but me too, I think I need to know more. To describe someone as a loser is quite …tough? harsh?
