First Chapter First Paragraph ~ Tuesday Intros - Bones & All; Camille DeAngelis


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. (This one sounds quirky and fun and has been receiving positive reviews as well.)

Bones & All; Camille DeAngelis
St. Martin's Press - March 2015

"Penny Wilson wanted a baby of her own in the worst way.  That's what I figure, because she was only supposed to watch me for an hour and a half, and obviously she loved me a little too much.  She must have hummed a lullaby, fondled each tiny finger and toe, kissed my cheeks and stroked the down on my head, blowing on my hair like she was making a wish on a dandelion gone to seed.  I had my teeth but I was too small to swallow the bones, so when my mother came home she found them in a pile on the living room carpet."
