First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Grab your current read(s).
  • Share the first line(s).
  • Include the title and author.

"I cry out to God without holding back. Oh, that God would listen to me!"
~ O Lord, Hear My Cry by Zari Banks


"Our story begins on a sweltering summer night in New York City—Friday, July 19, 1986, to be exact—during a sold-out show at the legendary Madison Square Garden, which some twenty thousand exuberant fans, mostly in their teens and early twenties, mainly African-American and Hispanic, had traveled from near and far to attend."
~ The Tanning of America by Steve Stoute


"Charlotte smiled at Curtina, the stepdaughter she once hated, and could hardly wait for her guests to arrive at the huge birthday bash they were throwing for her."
~ The Reverend's Wife by Kimberla Lawson Roby
