Book Beginnings: June 1, 2012

This meme is hosted by Rose City Reader

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 at Rose City Reader every Friday.

This one just showed up in the mail today so my daughter and I are going to read it together.

"Skye had known something was coming. The way her dad had been acting lately was beyond his normal weirdness. She just never guessed the something coming would be a bunch of Japanese relatives she'd never met."

This has many elements that appeal to me: a setting outside the US; it's a YA book; culture clash.
