First Lines Fridays #6

Hey. hey, hey!! Happy Friday, everybody! I hope you’ve been having an excellent week so far. Today I’m back with another First Lines Friday… hope you enjoy!! 😉


First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words.
What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
Genre: Young Adult – Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 402
Publication Date: May 2011
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Read October 2015

Goodreads Synopsis:
Who is the real McLean?
Since her parents’ bitter divorce, McLean and her dad, a restaurant consultant, have been on the move-four towns in two years. Estranged from her mother and her mother’s new family, McLean has followed her dad in leaving the unhappy past behind. And each new place gives her a chance to try out a new persona: from cheerleader to drama diva. But now, for the first time, McLean discovers a desire to stay in one place and just be herself, whoever that is. Perhaps Dave, the guy next door, can help her find out.
Combining Sarah Dessen’s trademark graceful writing, great characters, and compelling storytelling, What Happened to Goodbye is irresistible reading.
