First Line Friday

'First Line Friday' is going to be a new weekly post here at the Pinelands Library Blog. These posts will be perfect for those of you who are always on the lookout for something new to read! We will try to spark your interest by posting the first line of a book, along with a brief description. We will include one from each age group, so there will be something for everyone!

"How five crows managed to lift a twenty-pound baby boy into the air was beyond Prue, but that was certainly the least of her worries." -
Wildwood by Colin Meloy

When her baby brother is kidnapped by crows, seventh-grader Prue McKeel ventures into the forbidden Impassable Wilderness - a dangerous and magical forest in the middle of Portland, Oregon - and soon finds herself involved in a war among the various inhabitants.

"The longest day of my life began tardily." - Paper Towns by John Green

One month before graduating from his Central Florida high school, Quentin "Q" Jacobsen basks in the predictable boringness of his life until the beautiful and exciting Margo Roth Spiegelman, Q's neighbor and classmate, takes him on a midnight adventure and then mysteriously disappears.


"The news of Anders Eckman's death came by way of Aerogram, a piece of bright blue airmail paper that served as both the stationary and, when folded over and sealed along the edges, the envelope." - State of Wonder by Ann Patchett

Pharmaceutical researcher, Dr. Marina Singh, sets off into the Amazon jungle to find the remains and effects of a colleague who recently died under somewhat mysterious circumstances.
