First Paragraph, Tuesday Teaser -- The Lion Is In

Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph of the current book you are reading.
I found this book, The Lion Is In,  on Sim's blog, and I should have taken her advice to read it earlier.

I'm loving it. The book is by Delia Ephron, the sister of Nora Ephron. 

Here's the intro:
Three hours south of Baltimore. Six p.m. or so. June third. Two young women stand by the side on a rural two-lane highway. They are not sure what the road is or where it goes. In a frenzy, they left the interstate at a random exit, took one turn and then another. They are heading south, not intentionally.
 Also this week is Teaser Tuesdays. Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Open to a random page of your current read h and share a teaser sentence from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers. Here's my teaser from page 213:
"Is someone being there for you the same as being  your champion? I didn't have a champion but I had Lana."
Tracee doesn't want to be someone without a one. She doesn't want to be someone with zero. It seems doomed.
"I would like to be  your one," says Tim.
"Isn't it too late?"
"Hell, no. I'm  your one."

I'm really enjoying this book. You should give it a try.
