My teaser today is from Simple Twists of Faith by Judy Dearborn Nill. It's one of only 250 books in the quarterfinals for Amazon's 2012 Breakthrough Novel Award for young adult fiction. (The 100 semi-finalists will be announced April 24.) Good luck, Judy! I love this story, and I think you will too.
Here are two (okay, three) sentences from the book (approx. Page 9):
I’m not sure what Fay means by silk purses and sows’ ears, but I can’t mistake her tone. She doesn’t believe in me like Jeffrey does. Nobody believes in me like Jeffrey does.
Here's the synopsis from Judy's website:
Emma's in love with her married pastor, but she never expected him to kiss her. The kiss sets off a chain reaction of events that leaves her breathless and at odds with her best friend--wannabe boyfriend--Cal. When scandal rocks the church, Emma must decide how much of her experience to reveal, and at what cost.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading.
