Weekend Writing Warriors share an 8-sentence excerpt, and today I'm sharing from my VERY RECENTLY PUBLISHED young adult paranormal romance, ONCE AND FOR ALL. This is book 2 in the Sky Cove Series. Both books in the series are available at Amazon, B&N, and other retailers. (A complete list of links appears on the right sidebar.)
Today's snippet comes from Chapter 1 of the book. Phoebe and Todd have already had their "collision" (which, btw, "sparked" the paranormal connection between the two of them). Now she's on her way to class, observing the other students in the hall, and thinking about the fact that she only has one more semester before graduation. Remember, Phoebe's a social nobody, so it can't come soon enough for her!
I dodged cliques of students loitering around their lockers or the water fountains. I'd never admit it - and it made me nauseous to know it was true - but I actually sort of envied them.
Snap out of it, Phoebe! I ordered myself to lose the self-pitying thoughts. It was ridiculous to be jealous of kids whose entire existence centered around clothes, shoes, and dating.
I'd suffered their ridicule and ignorance for the past eight years, since moving to Sky Cove with my father at the age of nine. I'd jump off a cliff before I wished to be like any of them.
