Tuesday has once again appeared, and with it a new First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros post! This week I got a book that I heard a lot about and finally found in one of my libraries. It is a truly beautiful book so far and I hope it will continue to be like this for the whole book.
Frankie Perino and I were lucky that day. Lucky to be alive – that’s what everyone said. I got a fractured wrist and a banged-up knee, and my best friend Frankie got a fat little scar above her left eye, breaking her eyebrow into two reflective halves. Up one side, down the other. Happy, sad. Shock, awe. Before after.
Before, all of us were lucky.
After, only me and Frankie.
That’s what everyone said.
