First Line Friday is a weekly feature that I now love to take part in.

It is hosted by Wandering Words.

What if, instead of judging a book by its cover or by its author, we judged the book by its opening lines?

Here is how it works:

– Pick a book off your shelf and open to the first page.

– Copy the first few lines without giving the book away.

– Reveal the book

Here we go!


When the multiverse was confirmed, the spiritual and scientific communities both counted it as evidence of their validity. The scientists said, Look, we told you there were parallel universes. And the spiritual said, See, we’ve always known there was more than one life. EVEN WORTHLESS THINGS can become valuable once they become rare. This is the grand lesson of my life. I’m at the base of a mountain, looking over a landscape I was never meant to see. On this Earth—number 197—I died at three months old.

I’ve recently received this ARC from Netgalley and I’m super excited to start it!
