First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros - The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls; Anissa Gray

Each Tuesday, Vicki, from I’d Rather Be At The Beach hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros where  readers post the opening paragraph (sometime two) of a book they are reading or that they plan to read. 

Penguin Random House (Berkley) - 2019


"You do a lot of thinking in jail.  Especially when you're locked in the box that's your cell.  Mine is about as big as the walk-in closet I had back at home, but in place of clothes, I've got bunk beds, a stainless-steel sink-and-toilet combo, and a compact, padlocked cabinet.  The cabinet's where you keep you valuables, like family pictures, commissary, and letters, including the one from your daughter that's not addressed to you.  The letter that, truth be told, you just can't bring yourself to read, so you've got it tucked inside the bible that belonged to your dead mother."

Would you pass or keep reading?


  1. I have this one on my tbr list. I hope your read it and review it for us.

  2. The first line has me hooked. That alongside the cover, makes this one for my TBR list!

    Here is my Teaser Tuesday post!

  3. I'd keep reading, going now to learn more about the book.

  4. My curiosity is piqued, but I'll wait to hear what you think. :)

  5. I think I'd keep reading, I'm wondering why she's in jail and what her relationship with her daughter is like.

  6. I love the cover and I would keep reading. Thanks for stopping by Girl Who Reads.

  7. It sounds really good. I'd keep going.
