At RIF, we love cracking open a new book and reading the first sentence, the first paragraph. The beginning of Calling Invisible Women really grabbed us:
“I first noticed I was missing on a Thursday. Red and I had already been for our walk and he went to sleep on the bath mat while I was taking my shower. Red is a Cairn terrier. He’s bath mat size. After the shower I was standing in front of the mirror in a toweling robe brushing my teeth. When I looked up I was gone.”
