First Chapter

This week I’m featuring a book that surprised me. It’s the May selection in the Modern Mrs. Darcy online book club:

Seven hundred and thirty-three days after my mom died, forty-five days after my dad eloped with a stranger he met on the Internet, thirty days after we then up and moved to California, and only seven days after starting as a junior at a brand-new school where I know approximately no one, an email arrives. Which would be weird, an anonymous letter just popping up like that in my in-box, signed with the bizarre alias Somebody Nobody, no less, except my life has become so unrecognizable lately that nothing feels shocking anymore. It took until now – seven hundreds and thirty-three whole days in which I’ve felt the opposite of normal – for me to discover this one important life lesson: turns out you can grow immune to weird.

I really thought this was an interesting intro. It definitely made me want to continue on and see what Somebody Nobody had to say and how things would end up for Jessie in her new school. I sure hope you come back on Thursday to see my final thoughts on this book!
