First Lines Friday...

         That night, when Mrs. Chamberlain called, Emira could only piece together the words “…take Briar somewhere…” and “…pay you double.”

In a crowded apartment and across from someone screaming “That’s my song!,” Emira stood next to her girlfriends Zara, Josefa, and Shaunie. It was a Saturday night in September, and there was a little over an hour left of Shaunie’s twenty-sixth birthday. Emira turned the volume up on her phone and asked Mrs. Chamberlain to say it again.
        ………… Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid  

I just read a blurb about this book in Entertainment Weekly. In that blurb we find out what Emira decides and... what happens.  Do these first lines make you want to keep going? I found it intriguing... and I guess someone else did too, because even before this novel hits the shelves December 31st, the rights to a movie deal have already been signed.

Read an excerpt and decide for yourself at Penguin Random House. You can also listen to an excerpt there too!
