Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesday | 43

Hello, lovely readers!

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme that is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along.

Here are the rules:

  • 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 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 readers and other TT participants can add the book to their to be read lists if they want. (You can directly access the Goodreads page from this post by clicking on the title and author of the book, posted just below this.)

Joyride by Anna Banks

A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.

It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.

Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber’s mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.

All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

“If Julio found out I did anything like this, he’d kill me. Heroics bring attention. Attention brings scrutiny. And scrutiny exposes secrets.” -pg. 11
