This week I didn't plan for a theme at all. In fact, I opened up Amazon searched for young adult books and looked for the most interesting title or the first cover that caught my attention. Turns out the theme created itself... ages in the first sentences! Without even trying my subconscious took me on a wild ride in age land. So, is this simply a coincidence or are there just that many books that start off with an age?
1. I'm eighteen now, just turned eighteen last month.
2. I was seventeen years old when I saw my first dead body.
3. I was seven and living in Los Angeles when Japan surrendered at the end of World War II, and my first vivid memories are of how happy and excited everyone was.
Number two is one I really need to get my hands on! I've met this author and he was sweet as pie!
Any interest you?
