    Happy Friday! I have this book, and it’s on my list to read soon.
    My first line is from Joel C. Rosenberg’s new book Without Warning:
    “I had never been in the Oval Office before.
    But I’d always imagined my first time going differently.”

    That looks like a sweet book.

    My first line is…
    Far-off screams filled the air and rattled six-year-old Jimmy Colton’s bones.
    Mama?
    (from Beyond the Silence by Tracie Peterson and Kimberly Woodhouse)
