È sempre bello spulciare tra le occasioni che offre la XPresso e partecipare alle sue iniziative. Sono organizzatissimi e i libri che propongono sono vari e di ogni genere. Io e Kia abbiamo una passione per i libri romantici e in generale Young Adult e New Adult quindi, quando abbiamo visto questa copertina e la trama, non abbiamo potuto evitare di iscriverci per il Book Blitz. In generale storie in cui il/la protagonista è sotto Protezione Testimoni non ne ho mai lette, ma un po’ mi ispirano. Ricordo un film con le gemelle Olsen in cui le ragazze erano sotto Protezione Testimoni, ma niente di più. Voi che ne dite? La trama vi ispira?
Stavo quasi per dimenticarmene..se scorrete fino in fondo c’è uno splendido giveaway per voi, in cui potete vincere una copia ebook del libro e una gift card. Che aspettate a partecipare? Ricordate, il giveaway termina il 24 settembre 😉
Living under Witness Protection is something I really can’t imagine. You have to change everything about you and abandon everything and everyone you know to start a new life where you’re never able to tell someone the truth. It’s just terrible, but kind of fascinating. When Kia sent me the link to read the synopsis of this book, I decided I had to read it and we signed up for the Blitz. You can find an excerpt from the book and a giveaway scrolling down. The giveaway ends September 24th.

Ember hesitated. She should keep her mouth shut. She didn’t need to be a witness to another crime, and she certainly didn’t need to be nark-ing out the one person in Boyd County who knew her real identity and could expose her at any time. Still, a part of her wanted to confide in Claire. She was so sick of lying, of pretending, of keeping secrets.
“Ember, are you okay?” Claire reached out and touched her arm.
Ember grabbed her hand and held it. “If I tell you something, will you promise not to tell anyone?”
Claire nodded, her eyes wide. “Of course.”
“During the homecoming game, I saw something I shouldn’t have. Under the bleachers.”
Claire drew back. “You mean … Tommy Walker?”
Claire jumped up and plugged her ears. “Ew, gross. Don’t tell me. I don’t want to hear it. Ew, ew, ew.” She grabbed Ember’s shoulders. “I realize you can never un-see that, but you have to try to forget. Understand?”
Ember laughed and nodded. Claire had the wrong idea—a very, very wrong idea—but something about her reaction, her sweetness, her innocence, snapped Ember back to reality. No way could she confide in this girl. That huge ball of lies, pretending, and secrets she was living formed the entire basis of their friendship.
