How to participate: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. The link-up will be here at A Few More Pages every Friday.

"Berkeley students basked in the spring sunshine. They were watching a group of Hawaiians hula to the beat of traditional drums."
I think these two sentences give a sense for the writing and the scene at the beginning of the book. I haven't read much this week since we're on vacation but I am hoping this book will be a good vacation read.
