Book Beginnings: Year of Yes





Beginning: 
"You never say yes to anything." 
Six startling words. 

That's the beginning.That's the origin of it all. My sister Delorse said six startling words and changed everything. She said six words and now, as I write this, I have become a different person.

"You never say yes to anything."

She didn't even say the six startling words. She muttered them, really. Her lips barely moving, her eyes fixed intently on the large knife in her hands as she was dicing vegetables at a furious pace, trying to beat the clock. 


Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader that asks you to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you're reading and share initial thoughts.




Rhimes knew what she was doing starting this book with these 6 words. Immediately I wanted to know more. 

Why doesn't she say yes to things? 
What's her deal?
Do I share more in common with her than I may realize?

Looking forward to reading more of this :)
