First Line Friday | July 24, 2020The Mall by Megan McCafferty
Published by Wednesday Books on July 28, 2020
Genres: YA, Contemporary, Historical Fiction
Pages: 320
Goodreads

The year is 1991. Scrunchies, mixtapes and 90210 are, like, totally fresh. Cassie Worthy is psyched to spend the summer after graduation working at the Parkway Center Mall. In six weeks, she and her boyfriend head off to college in NYC to fulfill The Plan: higher education and happily ever after.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans...
Set entirely in a classic “monument to consumerism,” the novel follows Cassie as she finds friendship, love, and ultimately herself, in the most unexpected of places. Megan McCafferty, beloved New York Times bestselling author of the Jessica Darling series, takes readers on an epic trip back in time to The Mall.

“Less than five minutes after my triumphant return to the mall, I was targeted for assassination by a rabid spritzer from Bath & Body Works.”

I just love THE MALL by Megan McCafferty, and this is such an amazing first line!

  1. I’m currently reading Georgana’s Secret by Arlem Hawks (a very cool name, btw). I’m on chapter 12, so I’ll share the first line from there: “Seawater made poor wash water.” I think I’d have to agree! Hope you have an excellent weekend. 🙂❤📚

    Happy Friday! I’ve been in the mood to read my old Victorian novels, so my first line is from “St. Elmo” by author Augusta J. Evans. This is not the actual first line, but one that I like for how descriptive it is:

    “Until her wild song waked echoes among the far-off rocks, the holy hush of early morning had rested like a benediction upon the scene, as though nature laid her broad finger over her great lips, and waited in reverent silence the advent of the sun.”

  3. On my blog, I am sharing the first line from the Christian non-fiction, Courage, Hope, and Healing by Mary Pappas. It’s the compelling story of her battle against cancer. Here, I will share the first line from Chapter Five: Staring blankly out of the dining room window, I waited for the telephone to ring.
