Every Tuesday I host First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros sharing the first paragraph, maybe two, of a book that I'm reading or plan to read soon. (This is our book group read for January and, although I've already read it when it was first released, I plan to listen to the audio before our meeting at the end of January).
Small Great Things; Jodi Picoult
Ballantine Books - 2016
"THE MIRACLE HAPPENED ON WEST SEVENTY-FOURTH STREET, IN THE HOME where Mama worked. It was big brownstone encircled by a wrought-iron fence, and overlooking either side of the ornate door were gargoyles, their granite faces carved from my nightmares. They terrified me, so I didn't mind the fact that we always entered through the less impressive side door, whose keys Mama kept on a ribbon in her purse."
Based on that intro, would you read more or pass? Feel free to join us by posting your own INTRO and linking below. (I really enjoyed this one previously)
