First Chapter ~ First Paragraph

It's Tuesday . . . time for . . .

First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea, is where bloggers post the first paragraph(s) of a book they are currently reading or planning to read sometime soon.

Today I'm featuring You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott.  It's an upcoming read, which I borrowed from the library.

You Will Know Me 

The Party
The vinyl banners rippled from the air vent, the restaurant roiling with parents, the bobbing of gymnast heads, music gushing from the weighty speakers keeled on the window ledges.  
Slung around Devon's neck were three medals, two silver and one gold, her first regional-champion title on the vault.

"I'm so proud of you, sweetie," Katie whispered in her daughter's ear. "You can do anything."

Later, Katie would come to think of that night as the key to everything that came after, the secret code.

What do you think?  Would you continue reading?
I've been curious about this mystery novel since I saw it pop up around the blogosphere. The opening doesn't offer much of a glimpse into the story, but there is a strong endorsement on the cover from Girl on the Train author Paula Hawkins.  Hawkins's quote is:  "Almost unbearably tense, chilling, and addictive."
