The first line of a novel is EVERYTHING.
If it’s really good, it immediately draws me in.
This feature is going to highlight some books that had me falling in love at first line.
Today, I’m spotlighting a YA title that I’m very excited about, and it was blurbed by Diana Gabaldon!
This week’s book:
“Instantly engaging, constantly suspenseful, ultimately poignant and satisfying. Loved it!”—Diana Gabaldon, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Outlander series
When fragile, sixteen-year-old Hope Walton loses her mom to an earthquake overseas, her secluded world crumbles. Agreeing to spend the summer in Scotland, Hope discovers that her mother was more than a brilliant academic, but also a member of a secret society of time travelers. Trapped in the twelfth century in the age of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Hope has seventy-two hours to rescue her mother and get back to their own time. Along the way, her path collides with that of a mysterious boy who could be vital to her mission . . . or the key to Hope’s undoing. Addictive, romantic, and rich with historical detail,Into the Dim is an Outlander for teens.
