Teaser Tuesday: Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller {39}

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Title: Where the Stars Still Shine
Author: Trish Doller
Release date: September 24, 2013
Pages: 352
Stolen as a child from her large and loving family, and on the run with her mom for more than ten years, Callie has only the barest idea of what normal life might be like. She's never had a home, never gone to school, and has gotten most of her meals from laundromat vending machines. Her dreams are haunted by memories she’d like to forget completely. But when Callie’s mom is finally arrested for kidnapping her, and Callie’s real dad whisks her back to what would have been her life, in a small town in Florida, Callie must find a way to leave the past behind. She must learn to be part of a family. And she must believe that love--even with someone who seems an improbable choice--is more than just a possibility.

Trish Doller writes incredibly real teens, and this searing story of love, betrayal, and how not to lose your mind will resonate with readers who want their stories gritty and utterly true.
My teaser, from 9% in the egalley:
"Really?" My birthday is in May, only six months away. Half a year. Temporary. And I've got temporary down to an art.

His eyes tell me this is an offer he doesn't want to make, but he nods anyway. "I promise."
I'm so excited to read this one!

I'll be visiting around and visiting back, so leave me links to your teasers! Have a lovely Tuesday!
