Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.
This week my teaser comes from The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu, author of Moxie. I absolutely loved Moxie so was very excited to receive this from NetGalley and read it at the end of last week. I wouldn’t say I didn’t enjoy it but I’m afraid my expectations were a little too high and it was a bit disappointing. You can read my full review here.
‘I’m not a sideshow attraction.’
And she wasn’t. Not to me.
She was the main attraction.
But I had no way to tell her that.
~ 19% The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu
Everyone knows Alice slept with two guys at one party.
But did you know Alice was sexting Brandon when he crashed his car?
It’s true. Ask ANYBODY.
Rumour has it that Alice Franklin is a slut. It’s written all over the ‘slut stall’ in the girls’ bathroom at Healy High for everyone to see. And after star quarterback Brandon Fitzsimmons dies in a car accident, the rumours start to spiral out of control.
In this remarkable novel, four Healy High students – the party girl, the car accident survivor, the ex best friend and the boy next door – tell all they know.
But exactly what is the truth about Alice? In the end there’s only one person to ask: Alice herself.
