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.

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.
