Angela and Leah are two co-workers turned best friends who run an awesome book blog together. They posted a review of The Girl In Between today and it absolutely blew me away! It was the most in-depth of all of the feedback I’ve received so far and it was such a treat hearing who their favorite characters were and discovering some of their favorite lines from the story. It’s an author’s dream come true when readers take such time and care to share all of those little things that they loved most and I spent the majority of my Sunday afternoon committing all of their kind words to memory. Angela and Leah are also hosting a giveaway for the second book in the series, which you can enter via their Instagram page.

Every day I continue to be blown away by the kindness and generosity of the blogging community and am so grateful to all of the people participating in the tour. There have been a few hiccups along the way and more than a few moments when I wasn’t sure that any of this would actually happen but it’s been a collective effort since day one and every reviewer and tour host has just gone above and beyond to share my books with others.

Current Giveaways:
Southern Bred, Southern Read (Ends Wednesday, November 5th)
Reading Teen (Ends Friday, November 7th)
Sofia Loves Reading (Ends Friday, November 14th)

Free Chapter Friday

I knelt by the window, fingers parting the blinds, peering out. The sun was still out and I examined the trees, waiting for every dark corner and every shadow to swell like the forest’s lungs. I waited for it to come for me. But back in Bryn’s tree house, when I’d reached for her hand, stroking empty air, she wasn’t the only thing that had disappeared.

When I’d turned back around the shadow was gone too and so was the cold. When the ice in my veins finally started to melt that’s when I ran back to the farmhouse.

I heard the door shudder, the knob turning, and I bolted upright. When I saw that it was Bryn, her smile impossibly wide as she stepped through the front door, my stomach clenched. She found me?

Free Chapter Saturday

I felt her in the doorway; long shadow spilling into the closet.

“Roman,” I breathed.

“What?”

She sunk down next to me and I handed her the coin. It glinted in her palm, finger pressed to the plastic case.

“My name is Roman,” I said.

She looked at me, wide-eyed. “You remember?”

“My name. I saw it and I knew.”

She traced the case with her thumbnail. “Roman.” Her lips curled into a smile. ”I like it. It’s…”

“Ancient?”

She looked at me. “It’s strong.”

Strong. Am I strong?

“Anything else?” she asked.

I shook my head. “No, not yet, and I’ve looked through everything in this house.”

She slipped the coin back into the box and rose to her feet. “Then maybe we should start looking somewhere else.”

Free Chapter Friday

I woke to Dani’s wet hair dripping onto my shoulder.

She’d stayed the night when she missed curfew and was too afraid to face her mom in the morning. She’d been out with Matt, parked somewhere and making out in the bed of his truck. My bed was going to smell like fish and pond water for a week but when she’d texted me I was relieved. I was tired of staring out my bedroom window, shuddering every time the curtains fluttered, waiting for that thing to find me.

Free Chapter Saturday

I traced the ink rippling up from the sketch of the boy’s t-shirt, thumbnail grazing every smear and tear. It didn’t feel so foreign anymore or like some ancient thing that needed unraveling. Because he was a person. A person who might belong there among my old books and records and my grandmother’s quilt and every tree I’d ever climbed as a child. A person I might have been meant to meet. He was a person.

I sat there trying to make sense of things, wafting between fear and impatience. Because I had two choices: I could wait on the universe or I could find him first. I could find him.

There was a light knock on the door. “Homework?”

I flipped my sketchbook closed. “Yeah, still catching up.”

My mom sat on the edge of my bed. “So, I just talked to Dr. Sabine.”

“About the trial?”

“No, not exactly. I…might have asked her what she thought about you touring some college campuses this spring.”

“What?” I sat up. “Really? What did she say?”

“She said it couldn’t hurt. But she also said we have to be realistic about our expectations.”

“I know.”

“You may not get to go as far as you’d like.”

“I know,” I repeated.

“You may not get to…”

“I get it. Trust me. I am expectation free,” I said, even though I’d already decorated my dorm in my head and decided what I’d pack and made my class schedule. “Zero expectations.”

“You’re sure you want to do this?” she asked.

“Yes. Positive.”

And I was sure. I knew I wanted to go, to live that life even if it was just for a day. What I wasn’t sure of was whether or not I’d be able to find a way to manage my episodes, if some spontaneous discovery in the next few months would lead to a cure. Or if the things that were happening to me were a sign that a cure, even if I did manage to find one, wouldn’t do much good.

But I could hope, right? I could go and I could hope.

“Okay,” my mom sighed, “then I’ll make the arrangements.” She placed a hand on my forehead. It was warm. “You’re brave, you know that?”

I smiled even though all sick people are brave by default. My mom’s eyes flicked to my window. That’s when I registered the voices, someone yelling. She shot up and I followed her outside, shadows tangled in the grass. My uncle’s shoulders were tensed and then for the first time in eight months I saw my dad. He was pinned against the door of a truck I didn’t recognize, my uncle gripping his shoulders.
