First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books
Honestly, I wasn’t sure if i was going to do a post this week because its been a relatively slow reading week (meaning I’ve only finished 1 audiobook and that’s about it)…which is probably why I’m so far behind on my reading challenge for the year. But my first line Friday is from my current lunch book (aka, the book I carry in my bag because I can’t have my kindle in the office…)
“Regan?” Dr Lee arched an eyebrow and rested the tip of his pen against his pad. The ink slowly seeping into the paper, a small pool of blue against a yellow backdrop.
From: Life Unaware – Cole Gibson
From the Goodreads description:
Regan Flay has been talking about you.
Regan Flay is on the cusp of achieving her control-freak mother’s “plan” for high school success―cheerleading, student council, the Honor Society—until her life gets turned horribly, horribly upside down. Every bitchy text. Every bitchy email. Every lie, manipulation, and insult she’s ever said have been printed out and taped to all the lockers in school.
Now Regan has gone from popular princess to total pariah.
The only person who even speaks to her is her former best friend’s hot but socially miscreant brother, Nolan Letner. Nolan thinks he knows what Regan’s going through, but what nobody knows is that Regan isn’t really Little Miss Perfect. In fact, she’s barely holding it together under her mom’s pressure. But the consequences of Regan’s fall from grace are only just beginning. Once the chain reaction starts, no one will remain untouched…
Especially Regan Flay.
so I’m about halfway through this book so far and its intriguing – because rarely do you see (at least in my experience) the bullying of a popular kid because of something that happened…admittedly the alternate titles Blacklistee or The Social Media Experience caught my eye and I want to see if they maybe fit better than Life Unaware (because from my observations so far, I don’t think Regan is really that unaware…i think she likes her place in the world and feels the pressure to maintain it)…but who knows…
