Sketches of My Soul (Sketches #1)   

By TC Booth

Genre: Contemporary

Age category: Young Adult

Release Date: June 20, 2017

 

Blurb:

In the game of life, I was used to being on the losing team. The odds were stacked against me. Tegan’s Team—a mom who tried to control me, a dad who would rather drink then spend time being a father, a lying ex-boyfriend, and fake friends. Like any team however, you have that one shining star that stood out above the rest. For me that star was Emily, my best friend.

I guess life had pity on me the day it gave me a friend that always had my back. Life must have felt extra giving the day it gave me a cheer leader—Mrs. White, my next-door neighbor. She’d been more of a parent to me growing up then my own parents.

And then there was Andrew. He was my shooting star. One that I never saw coming. One that I hoped became mine over the summer of my senior year.

A glimpse into a crystal ball couldn’t have prepared me for that summer, though. The summer where a letter from my mom rocked me to the core. I felt the world shake with every word I read in that letter. By the time I reached the end, my world split wide open swallowing me whole.

 

Excerpt:

  Sketches of My Soul

A faint sound of music seeped in my window. The melody called me out of bed. I pushed aside the curtains to peer out into the darkness. Andrew sat on Mrs. White’s porch swing and strummed his guitar under the soft glow of the porch light. His lips moved in song, though I couldn’t hear his voice. The distant sound of the guitar was all I caught. The temptation to throw up the window to take in more sound felt strong, but the fear that he’d notice felt even stronger.

Crouched below the window frame, hidden by the wall-space between it and floor, I cracked the window as gently as I could. It felt so lame, spying on “the boy next door.” The smooth velvet voice that sang “All of Me” made my stalking worth it, though. With my back against the wall, I hugged my knees, closed my eyes, and soaked in the words.

When the music stopped, I strained to listen for any sign of movement. After a few minutes of silence, I decided it would be safe to stand up. With the window safely shut, I started to tug the curtain back in place and sucked in my breath at the sight of Andrew standing on the porch. His eyes locked with mine. He grinned and wiggled his fingers in a playful wave.

My fingers returned the wave instinctively. Then realization hit me—there I stood, in front of the window with my Winnie-the-Pooh nightshirt on.

I flung the curtains shut and jumped for my bed but missed and landed on the floor with a thud. My elbow and knees burned from the friction of my collision with the carpet.

“Tegan? Are you okay?” My mom yelled from the hallway outside my door.

“Yes. I just slipped. I’m fine.” I couldn’t believe he’d seen me. He probably thought I was such a loser—spying on him from my bedroom window with a Winnie-the-Pooh nightshirt on. Embarrassment poured over me in buckets painting me red. No way would I go to Mallory’s party now.

Book blitz: Freak by Erin Lee

Welcome to my stop for the book blitz for Freak by Erin Lee. The book blitz is organized by Lola’s Blog Tours and runs from 27 June till 3 July. See the tour schedule here: http://www.lolasblogtours.net/book-blitz-freak-by-erin-lee/

 

Freak

by Erin Lee

Genre: LBGT/ Contemporary

Age category: Young Adult

Release Date: 29 June, 2017

 

 

Blurb:

Regret Comes in Every Color of the Rainbow

 

Based on Erin Lee’s novella, Her Name Was Sam, Freak is the story of Kelly and Morgan, the mother and sister of Sam Harris, in the aftermath of her suicide. Bullied for being brave enough to show her true colors to the world, Sam has been gone exactly one year and Kelly and Morgan are left to tackle the grief that comes with regret in her absence.

But Sam’s story is far from over…

Through the love of Willow, a teenager intent on standing up for her “Freak” best friend at all costs, Ryan is able to finally come out to family and friends. His transformation from ashamed to proud with Willow’s help gives new meaning to Sam’s story and how things could have been.

 

Excerpt:

Ryan

Am I a coward? Probably so. And that’s fine. I’ve been called a hell of a lot worse. Usually, it’s just Freak. That happens the most on the days I get too colorful for the assholes at Conant High School. Generally, I try to tone it down. God forbid a guy want to express himself. In a way, I blame myself for it. I guess stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason. Had I just toned it down and not gone through that phase in middle school with the black nail polish and the leather spiked collar, they might not even know. I don’t speak with a lisp. I don’t walk any different than any other guy at school. And I sure as hell do my best to keep the dramatics down. Still, they know. And it’s fucked up. Because if I could be who I really am, I’d do all those things and so much more. I’d pay a million dollars for someone to truly explain what’s so bad about wanting to just be me? I just don’t get what’s so wrong with being the way that I am.

When I’m with Willow, that shit goes right out the door. She’s probably the only friend I have who knows the true me anymore. My parents swear we’ll get married some day and have two perfect blond haired, blue-eyed children – a boy and a girl. Of course, they won’t be gay. That would be too much for my mother to take. “Leave me some hope, Ryan. And take off those sneakers! No shoes in the house!” No, to Mom, perfect comes only when you fit into a pre-packaged mold. A boy should be strong and athletic. A girl should be pretty and pink, like Willow. “The perfect girl for you, Ryan. Be nice to her, Ryan. Someday, Ryan, you’ll see. I just have a feeling about her.” Gross. For starters, there is absolutely nothing about my best friend that I find attractive in any way other than platonic. Even her freckles scare me.

Besides, Willow has flaws. No one is perfect, Mom. If Willow was so perfect, she might understand why now isn’t the best time in the world to come out to my parents. It’s hard enough to get through the average school day. She’s the only one who will sit with me at lunch anymore. Most days, I feel guilty about it; no matter how much fun we have whispering at the head cheerleader who thinks she’s hotter than everyone else. If Willow was “the one” I’d also be able to tell her that her nagging’s getting old and, frankly, I’m sick of feeling alone. I know it’s ridiculous, but sometimes, I feel like if Willow really “got” me, she’d become gay too. (I know, I know better than anyone – it’s not a choice). Still, the silences between us are becoming more frequent and she doesn’t invite me over as much. No matter how hard she tries, she’s never going to get what it’s like to be the kid they call Freak. Sure, I appreciate that she stands up for me. But lately, I just wish she’d leave me alone. She’d be better off. Frankly, they would all be – if I was just gone… And all of this? It makes me a terrible guy. Because as much as I need her to just go away for both of our sakes, I can’t stand it when she’s gone. To be honest, I’m really afraid of what I might do if I was left entirely alone for too long. Sometimes, I have scary thoughts. Most of them start with Colby. Generally, they end with him too, at my funeral: The one place he wouldn’t be able to hurt me.

 

Because love comes in all shades too.
