This is a meme I found as I was visiting other members of the Teaser Tuesday meme. In the future I hope to combine the memes but since I posted about The Testing for Teaser Tuesday I'm going to post about the other book I'm reading now.
Bibliophile By the Sea, and in this meme you post the first (few) chapters from your current read.
In this heart-wrenching
and suspenseful teen thriller, sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for
"normal." Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, all her
life she’s been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust. But
when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to
uncover the courage she never knew she had, become a hero rather than a
victim, and learn to look beyond her face to find the beauty and
strength she has inside. It’s that—or succumb to a killer.
Today is the day I've been waiting for my entire life- the beginning of normal.
I reach for the latest Seventeen and flip through its glossy pages until I find the perfect face. The girl is pretty, with wide green eyes, hollow cheekbones, and full, pouty lips. But what I notice most is her smooth, unblemished skin. It's perfect. I cut photo out and stick it above my bed, in the last of the space. Now I can't even see the sunlight yellow of my walls- but the confidence that shines in these faces is even brighter. And today I'm going to get so much closer to that. I don't care how much the treatments hurt; it'll be worth it. It can't hurt as much as the stares and rude comments I get everyday.
