First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea. Each week, participants share a paragraph (or two) from a book they are currently reading or are planning to read soon.
Today I’m going to share the first two paragraphs of Odd Child Out by Gilly Macmillan. My stop on the blog tour is coming up on Thursday, October 26th. I’ll be starting this book very soon.
