Teaser Tuesday: Beautiful by Amy Reed

Teaser Tuesday is an awesome weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

The Rules:
  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for someone else)
  5. Share the title and book so other readers can add it to their TBR lists if they like it

    Today's teaser is from Beautiful by Amy Reed:
    "Here I am with the first friend I've had in forever. Here I am on my way to meet a boy who wants me." ~ pg 19

    Synopsis from Amazon.com:

    When Cassie moves from the tiny town where she has always lived to a suburb of Seattle, she is determined to leave her boring, good-girl existence behind. This is Cassie's chance to stop being invisible and become the kind of girl who's worth noticing.

    Stepping into her new identity turns out to be easier than Cassie could have ever imagined...one moment, one choice, will change everything.

    Cassie's new existence both thrills and terrifies her. Swept into a world of illicit parties and social landmines, she sheds her virginity, embraces the numbness she feels from the drugs, and floats through it all, knowing that she is now called beautiful. She ignores the dangers of her fast-paced life but she can't sidestep the secrets and the cruelty.

    Cassie is trapped in a swift downward spiral tinged with violence and abuse, and no one—not even the one person she thought she could trust—can help her now.

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
