Teaser Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Should Be Reading.
The idea is to:
Grab the book you are currently reading.
Open it up to a random page.
Share two teaser sentences.
Give the name and author of said book.And remember No Spoilers!
Today I am going to give you a teaser from The Lucky Kind by Alyssa B. Sheinmel. I finished reading it last night and it was awesome just as good as her debut The Beautiful Between which was one of my favourite books last year.
"I walk Eden to the subway, and the whole walk there, I know I'm going to kiss her good-bye, and I know she's going to kiss me back. I feel the kiss coming up from my stomach, as though that's where every kiss originates, waiting in your belly, growing stronger as it climbs up your rib cage, fluttering a bit when it passes your heart, and waiting, patiently in your throat, until you tilt your head and move you lips, and it knows it's time to come out from inside you."
High school junior Nick Brandt is intent on getting a girlfriend, and Eden Reiss is the one that he wants. He has exactly four semesters to get the girl, but when the phone rings on an otherwise ordinary Tuesday night, life for Nick and his parents will never be the same. What had been a seemingly idyllic home life has become something else entirely. But with this shake-up comes a newfound confidence for Nick; he's become a bolder version of himself, no longer afraid to question his parents, and no longer afraid to talk to Eden. Alyssa B. Sheinmel has written a powerfully gripping story about family secrets, falling in love, and finding luck in unexpected--and sometimes unwelcome—circumstances.
That's all for now.
