Again, my new feature where I post the opening few lines of one of my favourite books. I'd love it if you want to join in, do the same on your blog, and leave me a comment here with a link!
Jack was perfect. And that was the problem.
I knew I should have been congratulating myself on being the luckiest girl in the world, on winning the boyfriend lottery, but instead I couldn't help wondering: if Jack was perfect, then what was wrong with him?
You see, I know very well that no one is perfect, least of all me. A perfect girlfriend wouldn't have done what I've done. A perfect girlfriend wouldn't even have thought of it.
Why I love it:
Have just finished this one but it's already one of my very favourite books of the year - narrator Lily, who creates a fake profile on a social networking site to befriend her boyfriend's ex and find out more about him is a fantastic central character and this is an amazing story of friendship, love, and whether knowing the truth is always a good thing. Huge recommendation - full review to follow in a few days.
