First Line Friday

"OMG! I have never been so EMBARRASSED in my entire life!!" -Dork Diaries 4: Tales from a Not-So-Graceful Ice Princess by Rachel Russell 

Nikki Maxwell isn’t at all surprised to find out that her crush Brandon volunteers at a local animal shelter. He’s such a sweet guy—of course he wants to help those adorable puppies! Then Brandon tells her that the shelter is in danger of closing, and Nikki knows she can’t let that happen.

"I've lived with the pretense of perfection for seventeen years.  Give my room a cursory inspection, you'd think I have OCD."- Perfect by Ellen Hopkins

Cara’s parents’ unrealistic expectations have already sent her twin brother Conner spiraling toward suicide. For her, perfect means rejecting their ideals to take a chance on a new kind of love. Kendra covets the perfect face and body—no matter what surgeries and drugs she needs to get there. To score his perfect home run—on the field and off—Sean will sacrifice more than he can ever win back. And Andre realizes that to follow his heart and achieve his perfect performance, he’ll be living a life his ancestors would never have understood.  Everyone wants to be perfect, but when perfection loses its meaning, how far will you go? What would you give up to be perfect?

"We arrived in an undignified heap of witch and vampire." -Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness

Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches’ cliffhanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana and Matthew into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens.
