First Lines Friday

First Lines Friday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. 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.

"There's this dream 
I've been having 
about my mother 
that scares 
the holy night
out of me,
and each time I wake
from it
I'm afraid to open
my eyes
and face
the world that awaits, the
fractured world
that used to make sense,
but now seems
disjointed—islands of possibility
that float by—like
a thousand puzzle pieces
that just don't fit
together anymore."

~ Solo by Kwame Alexander with Mary Rand Hess
