Today’s teaser comes from All the Truth That’s in Me by Julie Berry
Release Date: September 26th, 2013
Published by: Viking Juvenile
Four years ago, Judith and her best friend disappeared from their small town of Roswell Station. Two years ago, only Judith returned, permanently mutilated, reviled and ignored by those who were once her friends and family. Unable to speak, Judith lives like a ghost in her own home, silently pouring out her thoughts to the boy who’s owned her heart as long as she can remember—even if he doesn’t know it—her childhood friend, Lucas. But when Roswell Station is attacked, long-buried secrets come to light, and Judith is forced to choose: continue to live in silence, or recover her voice, even if it means changing her world, and the lives around her, forever. This startlingly original novel will shock and disturb you; it will fill you with Judith’s passion and longing; and its mysteries will keep you feverishly turning the pages until the very last.
“The final explosion dwarfs the others.
The shouts and cries I heard from the riverbed will echo in my mind forever and make me wonder if my choice was good.
Is it comfort enough to know that they’d have done it to us if they could? And were it not for the miracle you’ve wrought today, they would. Good war-makers we are, you and I. (ARC pg 71.)
“I cry to my willow tree: robbed of years, robbed of dignity, language, tranquility.
Last of all, cruelest, robbed of you. (ARC pg 21.)
