Book Beginnings: May 18, 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.

I have had this book sitting on my stack for a while now. I believe it counts for one of my challenges (YA Awards?)

"The last place I thought I'd be when this day began is where I am, which is in a car. Mama's car to be exact, and she's driving headstrong through downtown Memphis with an Elvis impersonator on our tail."

Good start, right? Turns out the Elvis impersonator is the ex-boyfriend who just hit her mom so they are fleeing. So far this is a quirky little book and I am enjoying the fast read.
