Teaser Tuesday ~ 7/4/17

This is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers. While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

She sniffed. "What about you? Why did you miss your last class?"
"Oh, I slipped and sprained my left breast," I reported with a straight face.  "Had to go home and rest it immediately."
"Absolutely.  That sounds excruciating."
"Very."  I gave my boob a pat.  "The doctor said I mightn't be able to wear underwire for weeks.  We're talking possible sagging here.  The pain is real."  (Kindle location 1494)

Gotta love Edie.  She survived a shooting and it's got her experiencing firsts - like skipping class and being sarcastic.  Love the girl.
