Book Beginnings: Forever in Blue - Ann Brashares

'Once upon a time there were four girls. Young women, you might even say. And though their lives travelled in different directions, they loved each other very much.'

This beginning is in some ways kind of ironic at the beginning of the fourth book where the girls are shown to, in some sense, have lost touch with one another. It's told by Bridget though and it's classic Bridget phrasing in my opinion.

This beginning is actually different than the others, in that the other's all introduce the pants before the girls, the pants in the previous books had been more of a deal. This time around however the focus really is on the girls, and it shows in this beginning. They're able to live their lives more without thinking at every turn, 'ooh it's the magic of the pants.'

I'm linking up to Book Beginnings @ Rose City Reader.

  3. Haven't read these series but this opening sounds pretty sentimental and almost fairy tale-esque! The cover makes it look like one of those summer holiday book! Thanks for sharing! Hop on over to My Friday Post if you have the time!
