Book beginnings on Friday – Trapped
Book Beginnings on Friday is a bookish meme sponsored by Katy at A Few More Pages.
Here’s what you do: share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments section . Include the title and author so we know what you’re reading. Then, if you are so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and if you liked or did not like that sentence. Link-up each week at Katy’s place.
My beginning this week is from Trapped by Michael Northrop.
We were the last seven kids waiting around to get picked up fram Tattawa Regional High School. It sounds like an everyday thing, but this wasn’t an ordinary day. It was one of those bull’s-eyes in history, one of those points where everything comes together, where, if you were at that place at that time, you were part of something big. It meant that we weren’t going to get picked up, not on that day and maybe not ever.
I know this will be about snow, the cover leaves no doubt. A bit of a dismaying thought as we’re heading towards winter in these northern latitudes. I also have a feeling that it’ll be fairly claustrophobic. So far, it looks fairly good. We’ll see.
