First Lines Friday – 20th September 2019

First Lines Friday

Welcome to my “First Lines Fridays” this is a weekly meme, that I first saw on Jill’s Book Blog and which is originally hosted by Wondering Words.

Rules:

  1. Choose a book from your shelves/current read
  2. Open the book to the first page
  3. Copy the first line on the page, making sure you don’t give away the book title
  4. Reveal the book.

FIRST LINES:

“My parents didn’t seem the sort of people who would end up killing someone. Everyone would say that – except the boy who dies, who isn’t saying anything. He carried his story with him off the edges of the earth, like the others who died along the way.”

Do you recognise which book these lines come from?

This weeks book is…

The Other Half Of Augusta Hope

Synopsis/Blurb (Goodreads):

Augusta Hope has never felt like she fits in.

At six, she’s memorising the dictionary. At seven, she’s correcting her teachers. At eight, she spins the globe and picks her favourite country on the sound of its name: Burundi.

And now that she’s an adult, Augusta has no interest in the goings-on of the small town where she lives with her parents and her beloved twin sister, Julia.

When an unspeakable tragedy upends everything in Augusta’s life, she’s propelled headfirst into the unknown. She’s determined to find where she belongs – but what if her true home, and heart, are half a world away?

Have you read this book? How did you find it? Let me know down below.
