Welcome to First Chapter/Intros, now hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews. Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book they are reading or that they plan to read soon.

"IVY LIN WAS A THIEF BUT YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW IT TO LOOK at her. Maybe that was the problem. No one ever suspected--and that made her reckless. Her features were so average and nondescript that the brain only needed a split second to develop a complete understanding of her: skinny Asian girl, quiet, overly docile around adults in uniforms. She had a way of walking, shoulders forward, chin tucked under, arms barely swinging, that rendered her invisible the way of pigeons and janitors."
What do you think, read more or pass? I've been eyeing this one for several months, it releases on Election Day. I hope to start it this week.
