Teaser Tuesday - Perigee Moon

Perigee Moon
With every Teaser Tuesday, my TBR collection grows, and I'm sure today will be no exception. I can't wait to see what everyone is reading!


My Teaser today is from Perigee Moon by Lynn Schneider. This excerpt takes place during Kate's high school years.

Kate, a principal in the elite that comprised the popular group, insisted upon dragging Luke along with her everywhere and if he kicked and screamed, then so be it. He was enlisted to escort her to dances and parties and other activities to which she summoned him, and he did it without complaint, but whenever he had a night off, it surprised him, how optimistic he could feel when presented with the knowledge that he wouldn't be seeing Kate. 
[at 7% on my Kindle]

Here's the synopsis from Amazon: 
     Dismayed at events occurring in his family and with the world in general, Luke desires a different kind of existence. Issues he has been unwilling to confront become important enough that he realizes he must make life-altering decisions, reconsider a variety of things he thought he’d understood all along, and revise the view of his own nature and place in the world.
     Controlled by Kate, who has been his constant companion since childhood, he has been coerced into choices he never expected to make, and a lifestyle he never expected to live. Until the night of the Perigee Moon when everything has gone wrong and Luke makes choices of his own. 
     Abby, an old friend from high school comes back into his life and Luke finds the friend, the lover, the soul mate he has craved only to be subjected to Kate’s unwillingness to let go. Luke must convince Kate that what they had is over and convince Abby that what they have is right.

(HINT: I loved this book.)

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.

  5. Kate comes across as a bit of a bitch. Is she like that in the rest of the book?

    1. She sure is. She's a character you love to hate.

  6. HE HE... Kate sounds like some of the women I know, and AVOID, I always feel so sorry for their husbands! I just want to bake them cookies and give them a corner to hide in!

    Here is my Teaser Tuesdays post!

    1. I avoid women like that too, and I wonder how their husbands tolerate them.

  8. Luke sounds a little bit spineless - but perhaps he grows during the course of the book? Interesting teaser.

    Thank you for visiting my blog today!

    1. I kept wishing he'd "man up." But he had good, logical reasons to go along with Kate's plans.

  12. Hi Sandra,

    I think that Luke is going to be a character that I would like to shake really hard and tell him to get a life, which is exactly the advice he seems to take later on in the story.

    I just hope that given Kate's vindictive nature, it isn't all going to end in tears. I guess I shall just have to read it to find out.

    Great review by the way, thanks for sharing.

  13. The teaser had me wondering what the optimism was about, and the blurb answered. Cool.
