Summer fun - first lines

Yesterday's first line was purposely devious. "It was night and some fireflies danced around the moon." is the first line of Eric Carle's The Grouchy Ladybug.  Yeah, I know!  Tricky!  I have another puzzler for you at the end of the post.

The "Make a Splash-READ!" Summer Reading Club starts on June 14th but the kick-off is scheduled for 7 pm on June 24th.  "The Voyage of the Vikings" is a wonderful interactive program that re-lives the drama of Viking sea voyages and their everyday lives.  Kitty Jones of Kit's Interactive Theatre is the performer who will lead the audience on this adventure.  Jones is an actress who has performed in movies, on the New York stage and on TV.  She performs over 300 interactive performances in schools, libraries and museums every year.  Don't miss this Summer Reading Club kick-off.  The program will be held in the South Whitehall Township Building.

Today's First Line puzzle delves into fiction written for teens.  To help you out, I have added the chapter heading as well.

May, 1889
"'It has now been more than eight months since the girl went missing - '"

Your choices are:
A.  The Case of the Peculiar Pink Fan by Nancy Springer
B. Once Was Lost : a novel by Sara Zarr
C.  Stolen by Vivian Vande Velde

Have fun guessing.
