Sharing our love for authors, and the stories they are inspired to tell.

‘The Girls’ by Lori Lansens

As I turned to move, Ruby’s hand, the hand that lives on my neck and shoulder and is so much a part of me I imagine its pulse linked to my heart, not hers, suddenly lost its grip and, as had only ever happened when my sister was very sick, my balance shifted and the two of us nearly careened head-first into the sharp edge of Aunt Lovey and Uncle Stash’s stone.

Having learned that life wasn’t always fair, and even less so for a girl attached to her sister, I took some comfort in knowing that Frankie Foyle would be at summer school and that Ruby and I could worship him from our pushed-together desks at the back of the room. Ruby insisted Frankie was disgusting, but I knew, the way I knew everything about Ruby, that she was infatuated with him too.

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, you can find out more about the storyline and author by clicking on the cover image above.

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story by visiting this page

Teaser Tuesday Button - A Daily Rhythm


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by … Jenn at ‘A Daily Rhythm’

Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:

Open to a random page.

  1. Share a couple of  “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
  2. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences.
  3. Remember to share the title and author too.
  4. Head on over to ‘A Daily Rhythm’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it and you can share other people’s.

It would be great if you then decided to leave a comment for Jenn, as we all like to receive them and are interested in sharing your thoughts.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
