Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
– Grab your current read
– Open to a random page
– Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
– BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
– Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I didn’t do a teaser last week, so it is good to be back! Today’s teaser is from Unbreak My Heart. I am just over halfway through this book and think it is a cute summer read!
Sophomore year broke Clementine Williams’ heart. She fell for her best friend’s boyfriend and long story short: he’s excused, but Clem is vilified and she heads into summer with zero social life.
Enter her parents’ plan to spend the summer on their sailboat. Normally the idea of being stuck on a tiny boat with her parents and little sister would make Clem break out in hives, but floating away sounds pretty good right now.
Then she meets James at one of their first stops along the river. He and his dad are sailing for the summer and he’s just the distraction Clem needs. Can he break down Clem’s walls and heal her broken heart?
Told in alternating chapters that chronicle the year that broke Clem’s heart and the summer that healed it, Unbreak My Heart is a wonderful dual love story that fans of Sarah Dessen, Deb Caletti, and Susane Colasanti will flock to.
“That shirt really makes your hair stand out,” I say. I don’t know why I said that. I think I want to avoid telling him his eyes are, like, the most beautiful eyes I’ve ever seen. pg 63
Looking forward to finishing this book tonight and seeing how it ends!
** I currently have a giveaway going for a SIGNED copy of SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson, if anyone is interested. Ends soon! Link is located on the top of the sidebar. 🙂
