First Line: "Growing up is tough for everyone"

Funny, You Don't Look Autistic by Michael McCreary

Thoughts? Did it grab your attention? Let me know below. 

Also, be sure to stop by Hoarding Books to check-out other first-liners.


  1. Happy Friday! 😀
    Today on my blog I'm sharing from As Easy as Cherry Pie by Bell Renshaw. I'm just getting to chapter 3, so I'll share a line from there.
    "Maggie flipped on the fluorescent lights in the shop's kitchen and stifled a yawn."
    Have an excellent weekend! 🙂❤📚

  2. My first line is from a book just released by Izzy James. It’s a historical THE SHOPKEEPER’S WIDOW.
    30 September, 1775. Borough of Norfolk, Virginia
    With a startled swipe of her arm, Delany Fleet brushed Noah’s animal ps to the floor.
    My reviews are up.

  3. Happy Friday! My first line is from “To Love a Prince” by Rachel Hauck:

    “It is said in the north country of Lauchtenland that the sea has a song and love blooms from the earth the same as flora and fauna.”

  4. Happy Friday!!

    Today on my blog I'm sharing from The Christmas Visitor an Amish novella from Amy Grochowski! "After a long trek to the veterinarian's office, Mattie Beller was out of breath before she managed to push her scooter halfway up the steep hill to Annandale Farm."

    Have a lovely weekend!

  5. Happy Friday! Today, I'm sharing the first lines from Blue Moon by Jenny Knipfer. "Come. We must be quiet.' I motion to the lad as I kneel next to his bed."
