0 Great Opening Sentences

Another great contest last week was the one posted by Jim McCarthy of Dystel & Goderich in which the D&G blogowers were asked to submit and choose the best first sentence from an unpublished YA or MG manuscript. Check out the top nine and some fascinating discussion here:

There is a lot to be learned from the commentary and the lines themselves, and Jim promises more to come on Thursday at 5:00 pm when he posts the winner.

Polling is still open, so go cast your vote. And BIG congrats to Ara who, as of yesterday when I cast my vote, was in the lead.

Happy voting,

Martina
