First Line Friday is a bookish meme hosted by Hoarding Books where you post the first line of a book.
This week I’m spotlighting Verona Comics by Jennifer Dugan. This book is one of my most anticipated reads of 2020, and I’m planning on reading it later this month, once I tackle a few ARCs.
The First Line(s)
““You look like you’re being tortured,” Jayla says. “This is supposed to be fun.””
About the Book (From Goodreads):
“Jubilee has it all together. She’s an elite cellist, and when she’s not working in her stepmom’s indie comic shop, she’s prepping for the biggest audition of her life.
Ridley is barely holding it together. His parents own the biggest comic-store chain in the country, and Ridley can’t stop disappointing them—that is, when they’re even paying attention.
They meet one fateful night at a comic convention prom, and the two can’t help falling for each other. Too bad their parents are at each other’s throats every chance they get, making a relationship between them nearly impossible…unless they manage to keep it a secret.
Then again, the feud between their families may be the least of their problems. As Ridley’s anxiety spirals, Jubilee tries to help but finds her focus torn between her fast-approaching audition and their intensifying relationship. What if love can’t conquer all? What if each of them needs more than the other can give?”
