Book Beginnings on Friday: The Glass Castle

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

"I was sitting in a taxi, wondering if I had overdressed for the evening, when I looked out the window and saw Mom rooting through a Dumpster."

Such a terrific first line - I actually read it out loud to my boyfriend. It definitely sets the right tone for the book, letting you know right away that Mom isn't quite right and that surprising and harrowing things are to come.
