Road Trip Wednesday:

Kate Hart
Today at YA Highway, we want to hear your best lines. I've blogged at length about my favorite book openings here, here, here, here, here oh and here. So I'll just share the beginning of After The Fall.

-----

Is that how we lived, then? But we lived as usual. Everyone does, most of the time. Even this is as usual, now.
- The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

I would share the first line of Refuge, but it's about to undergo some heavy duty reconstruction and currently lacks a first line... or opening scene, for that matter. But there's a little more about After the Fall here. :)

We'd love for you to participate in Road Trip Wednesday - just leave a link in the comments on YA Highway!
