Den norska bokbloggaren “Flukten fra virkeligheten” har varje söndag en rolig liten utmaning där man ska skriva ner en liten smakbit av boken man läser för tillfället. Just nu läser jag bland annat ”Dragonfly” av Leigh T. Moore och här är min smakbit.
Three bad things I learned this year:
-People you trust lie, even parents.
-That hot guy, the one who’s totally into you, he might not be the one.
-Things are not always how they appear.
Three good things I learned this year:
-Best friends are always there for you, even when they’re far away.
-That other hot guy, the one who remembers your birthday, he just might be the one.
-Oh, and things are not always how they appear.
Anna Sanders expected an anonymous (and uneventful) senior year until she crossed paths with rich-and-sexy Jack Kyser and his twin sister Lucy.
Pulling Anna into their extravagant lifestyle on the Gulf Coast, Lucy pushed Anna outside her comfort zone, and Jack showed her feelings she’d never experienced… Until he mysteriously withdrew.
Anna turned to her internship at the city paper and to her old attraction for Julian, a handsome local artist and rising star, for distraction. But both led to her discovery of a decades-old secret closely guarded by the twins’ distant, single father.
A secret that could permanently change all their lives.
”So will you forgive my rude family and go out with me again?” We were in my driveway, and he came around to help me out.
”Your sister’s not rude.”
”What do you say?” Jack stopped me as I landed in front of him. I couldn’t believe this was happening. I looked up and his blue eyes were right there, waiting for my answer.
”Okay. I mean, of course! Why wouldn’t I?”
”Awesome.” He smiled and kissed me lightly on the mouth. My heart stopped.
”I’ll come by tomorrow,” he said, walking me to the door.
”But I’m going to be at my grandmother’s in Navarre.” Yes, that sounded far more mature.
”Okay.I’ll bring the boat down. I can put out in the Bay and meet you in the Sound.”
Oh my god. And oh my god, his boat. Could I count on Mom and Nana to be cool?
