Teaser Tuesday - Fixing Delilah (1/11/11)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

The Rules:
•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) or so “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•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 others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers

This week's teaser comes from Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler. This snippet is between Delilah and her mom:
I sit down next to her on the ground, not touching or talking, wedged into the familiar space between the rock part of me that mostly hates her and the hard-place part that dies to see her so uncertain. ~ pg. 17
Things in Delilah Hannaford's life have a tendency to fall apart.

She used to be a good student, but she can't seem to keep it together anymore. Her "boyfriend" isn't much of a boyfriend. And her mother refuses to discuss the fight that divided their family eight years ago. Falling apart, it seems, is a Hannaford tradition.

Over a summer of new friendships, unexpected romance, and moments that test the complex bonds between mothers and daughters, Delilah must face her family's painful past. Can even her most shattered relationships be pieced together again?

Rich with emotion, Sarah Ockler delivers a powerful story of family, love, and self-discovery.

How are you liking it so far? I read TBS, and loved it, so I'm pondering adding this to my list of contemps to try :)

Great teaser, Nikki!

I haven't read too much yet, but I love Sarah Ockler's writing. It's good so far though. Ockler could write about bugs and make it sound good!

I have a copy of this one on my shelf, and it's another one that I just can't wait to read. I've never read Sarah Ockler (though I also have Twenty Boy Summer on my shelf), but I've heard great things about her. That teaser was wonderful. It really conveys a lot of emotion! Thanks for sharing!
