Excerpt from Spark

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along!

Flipping through this week’s reads, trying to decide what to give you a teaser from… I just finished Spark by Brigid Kemmerer. It is book two of a series, and I read it without reading book one. She very quickly fills you in on what you missed in book one, so there is no problem understanding what is going on, even though it is paranormal. My only caveat against a wholehearted recommendation it is the language. It had me wincing too many times.

A girl on the cheer squad had once asked Gabriel if having a twin was like looking in a mirror all the time. He’d asked her if being a cheerleader was like being an idiot all the time—but really, it was a good question.

Gabriel Merrick plays with fire. Literally. 

Sometimes he can even control it. And sometimes he can’t.

Gabriel has always had his brothers to rely on, especially his twin, Nick. But when an arsonist starts wreaking havoc on their town, all the signs point to Gabriel. Only he’s not doing it.

And no one seems to believe him. Except a shy sophomore named Layne, a brainiac who dresses in turtlenecks and jeans and keeps him totally off balance. Layne understands family problems, and she understands secrets. She has a few of her own.

Gabriel can’t let her guess about his brothers, about his abilities, about the danger that’s right at his heels. But there are some risks he can’t help taking.

The fuse is lit. . .

  1. Hilarious teaser!

  2. I haven’t read much paranormal or young adult. Maybe I’m missing something!
    My Tuesday post features THE LAND OF MANGO SUNSETS.

  3. Ha!! That made me laugh.

  4. I don’t read much YA or paranormal, but it seems lately I’ve been getting into a bit of both.

    Mine this weeks is a Kinsey Millhone mystery. It’s Sue Grafton’s 21st. https://madamevauquer.wordpress.com/2015/08/11/sue-grafton-undertow-kinsey-millhone/

  5. That teaser is hilarious.

  6. I read the first one in this series but didn’t carry on. Maybe someday…. My YA teaser this week comes from Fairest by Marissa Meyer. Happy reading!

Tell me what you think!
