First Chapter ~ First Paragraph #57

First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea. It's an opportunity to share the first paragraph(s) of a book I am currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

Today I'm featuring the opening paragraph from A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams, which I borrowed from the library.

A Hundred Summers  

October 1931

One hundred and twelve miles of curving pavement lie between the entrance gates of Smith College and the Dartmouth football stadium, and Budgie drives them as she does everything else: hell-for-leather.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
This book caught my eye on several other blogs recently.  Since I've just finished reading Fallen Beauty by Erika Robuck, a novel set in the same general geographic area, and because this book opens in the same time period, I'm looking forward to extending my stay, so to speak, in this historical era.

What are you reading now or planning to read soon?
