My neighbour passed on a pile of books to me that she had read and among them was Lisa Gardner’s Crash & Burn. The story looked intriguing (a young woman who survives a car crash and wants help to find a child – who may not even exist). I opened the book and read the first paragraph.
“I died once.
I remember now, as much as I am capable of remembering, the sensation of pain, burning and sharp, followed by fatigue, crushing and deep. I’d wanted to lie down; I recall that clearly. I’d needed to be done with it. But I hadn’t. I’d fought the pain, the fatigue, the fucking white light. I’d clawed my way back to the land of the living.
Because of Vero. She needed me.” (page 1)
And I was hooked!
What are you reading this week? Feel free to share a few sentences from the book in the comments.
