Famous First Lines - Judging a Book By More Than Its Cover

We're all guilty of pulling a book off a shelf because it has an interesting cover. Or because it's a well-known author. Or maybe it's the next book in a beloved series. But what about when we can't see the cover at all? No names, no back-stories ... what if we had to judge based on nothing but the writing? 

We've pulled some books with interesting, eye-grabbing, or even just confusing opening lines, and we want you to check them out! 

The only hint we'll give you about these books, is that they're ALL Young Adult books. 

Can you identify these books based on their first line? Which one jumps out at you and makes you want to take it home RIGHT NOW? 

Come down to the Library and check out from our new Famous First Lines display!
