Today’s Teaser Tuesday:

Book cover for Ana of California by And Teran.
Summary (from Goodreads):

A modern take on the classic coming-of-age novel, inspired by Anne of Green Gables

In the grand tradition of Anne of Green Gables, Bridget Jones’s Diary, and The Three Weissmanns of Westport, Andi Teran’s captivating debut novel offers a contemporary twist on a beloved classic. Fifteen-year-old orphan Ana Cortez has just blown her last chance with a foster family. It’s a group home next—unless she agrees to leave East Los Angeles for a farm trainee program in Northern California.

When she first arrives, Ana can’t tell a tomato plant from a blackberry bush, and Emmett Garber is skeptical that this slight city girl can be any help on his farm. His sister Abbie, however, thinks Ana might be just what they need. Ana comes to love Garber Farm, and even Emmett has to admit that her hard work is an asset. But when she inadvertently stirs up trouble in town, Ana is afraid she might have ruined her last chance at finding a place to belong.

Here is the teaser:

“Though she hadn’t noticed it since the day shed arrived, there was a sliver of a store next door to the Moons’ with a handwritten sign in the window that read ‘Bungle Records, used and new vinyl’. She made a mental note to check it out, that is, if she was staying.”

    This sounds completely different from what I usually read, but it sounds entirely too good to pass up! And I adore the cover. Cuteness overload!
