Today’s Teaser Tuesday: In-Between Days by Vikki Wakefield
Author: Vikki Wakefield
Publisher: Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: August 30, 2016
Seventeen-year-old Jacklin Bates believes the only way to soar beyond her life is to drop out of school and move in with her free-spirited sister, Trudy. But Jack quickly discovers her sister isn’t the same person she used to be. And when Jack loses her job and the boy she loves breaks her heart, she’s desperate for distractions.
She strikes up an unlikely friendship with Pope, a lost soul camping in the forest behind her house, and begins a fragile relationship with Jeremiah, the boy next door. Together, over an endless summer, they fix up the abandoned drive-in theater at the edge of town.
Deep down, Jack knows she can’t stay in limbo forever. But sometimes the hardest part of starting over isn’t choosing a path…it’s figuring out how to take that first step forward.
There is so much for potential drama in this book, that the synopsis has me hooked. Also, I am a sucker for contemporary novels that have elements of friendship and family in them. I am hoping that this one proves to be a perfect summer read!
Here is the teaser
“A stranger sets up camp in the forest and the boy next door returns; Jack’s father moves into the shed and her mother steps up her campaign to punish Jack for leaving, too. Trudy’s brilliant façade is cracking and Jack’s only friend, Astrid, has done something unforgivable.”
