First Line Fridays- February 15th 2019

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines? the first few lines are at the top, scroll down to know what book it is. The book belongs to the author not me. Here we go.

These are the things you need to know:

  1. I hear voices.

2. I miss you.

3. I wish I could take back what I did to you.

4. What they said in the news, what they said I did. It’s not true. You don’t have to worry about that.

5. I’m going to write it all down, all about Paris and why I broke your heart, and then I’m going to e-mail it to you. It will take you I don’t know, a couple of days to read. So I will be waiting for you at 5:00 p.m Friday by the windmill hole of Pirate Golf on Pier 1, where we played that one time.

If you forgive me when you’re done reading this, come and get me. Okay? Think of this as the most screwed-up love letter ever.

I hope you come. That isn’t a thing you need to know, it’s true. I hope you do. I hope that when you’ve read this, you’ll understand why I did what I did.


Cassie is writing a letter to the boy whose heart she broke. She’s trying to explain why. Why she pushed him away. Why her father got so angry when he saw them together. Why she disappears some nights. Why she won’t let herself remember what happened that long-ago night on the boardwalk. Why she fell apart so completely.

Desperate for his forgiveness, she’s telling the whole story of the summer she nearly lost herself. She’s hoping he’ll understand as well as she now does how love—love for your family, love for that person who makes your heart beat faster, and love for yourself—can save you after all.

This is what I am reading at the moment, it has a beautiful cover. Hopefully when I finish it I will have a post up on it! Have you read it? comment your thoughts and opinions. Thanks for reading.
