First Line Friday #244

Authentically, Izzy

by Pepper Basham

Dear Reader,

This is a cautionary tale.

A tale of family, literary classics, podiatry, matchmaking, Shakespeare, and distance. Not exactly the sort of word grouping you may expect in a typical story, but some things aren’t meant to be…typical. For example, shark hats. Or maybe heartbreak-induced introversion. (All right, the introversion was already there, but the heartbreak certainly didn’t help.)


NOW IT’S YOUR TURN!

GRAB THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING, OPEN TO CHAPTER ONE, AND POST A SENTENCE OR TWO IN THE COMMENTS BELOW.

  2. I’m reading Izzy right now! It’s a laugh a page, at least!
    My first line this week comes from a breathtaking book The Lost Melody by Joanna Politano.
    One day in late May of the year 1886, I found myself imprisoned in the Hurstwell Pauper Lunatic Asylum. This was unconscionable—- I had never been a pauper.
