Book Beginnings: Pretending to Dance

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. 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.

Pretending to Dance by Diane Chamberlain

"I'm a good liar."

This is a good first line. Although I think it's not accurate. The main character, Molly, has decided she doesn't want to talk about one part of her life and that has necessitated a couple of lies (that her mother is dead, for one) which, as an adult living on the other side of the country, are actually pretty easy to maintain. She's not a habitual liar, nor does she enjoy it remotely. And when you feel it's necessary for your peace of mind, it's a lot easier to lie, when it wouldn't be for any other reason.
