Book Beginnings on Friday (2)
Book Beginnings on Fridays is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author's name.
Fractured by Teri Terry
Rain has many uses.
Holly and beech trees like those around me need it to live and grow.
It washes away tracks, obscures footprints. Makes trails harder to follow, and that is a good thing today.
But most of all, it washes blood from my skin, my clothes. I stand, shivering, as the heavens open. Hold out my hands and arms, rub them again and again in the freezing rain, traces of scarlet long gone from my skin but I can't stop.
This book picks up right where Slated left off. Kyla found herself in a situation where she had to defend herself, and much to her surprise, she was fully capable of doing so.
