The early summer sky was the color of cat vomit.

Sounds rather...pleasant, no? As mentioned in my previous post, I had started reading reading Uglies by Scott Weterfeld today. And the first sentence in the book? "The early summer sky was the color of cat vomit." Gee, that caught my attention! This is one great example of a fantastic hook, don't you think?
