Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Opening Lines. I went with the opening lines that I thought were interesting and different.

The Exact Opposite of Okay (Izzy O’Neill book 1) by Laura Steven
Look, you probably bought this book because you read the blurb about how I’m an impoverished orphan and also at the heart of a national slut-shaming scandal, and you thought, Oh great, this is just the kind of heart-wrenching tale I need to feel better about my own life, but seriously, you have to relax.
