Book Beginnings: Margot

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.

Margot by Jillian Cantor

"The third day of April 1959 seems, at first, just like any other Friday of my American life."

Margot/Margie doesn't immigrate to America for the usual "American dream" reasons, looking for success or roads paved with gold. She was looking to reinvent herself and escape her past.

As a Baby Boomer, I enjoy books that take place in the 1950s and 1960s, so I know I'd enjoy this story. I'll check it out on Amazon right now!

Reinventing herself and looking for success almost seem like the same thing to me. I guess it's a thin line??
