How to play along: Share the first line (or two) of the book you are currently reading on your blog or in the comments. Include the title and the author so we know what you're reading. Then, if you feel so moved, let us know what your first impressions were based on that first line, and let us know if you liked or did not like the sentence. The link-up will be at A Few More Pages every Friday and will be open for the entire week.

From Your Voice in my Head by Emma Forrest

"I was looking for weekend work, and though it was a Saturday job at a hairdresser's I was after, somewhere in my teenage mind I thought that Ophelia might need a handmaiden."

I love the reference to Ophelia, it already sets the mood for the memoir of manic depression that is to follow. Love it.
