First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - The First True Lie; Marina Mander


Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros sharing the first paragraph or two, from a book I'm reading or will be reading soon.  


The First True Lie; Marina Mander
Hogarth - 2014


Some Days

Some days I wonder: What does it mean to be a half orphan?

You can't know because you are a grown-up.

You've got parents who already seem like grandparents, a house where you're free to go into all the rooms, a car to get away in....There are so many things you can forget."

Based on this intro, would you read more or pass on this book?

Feel free to join in by posting your own First Chapter First Paragraph Intro and linking below.

  1. I'm hooked on that opening. I've never heard of a half-orphan, and I'm wondering why the character can't go into certain rooms. I'd keep reading to find out more.

    1. I haven't started it yet but, I think the boy's mother is dead and father uninvolved --half-orphan.
