So I was lucky enough to get early copy of Call it What you want!! I want to tease not only the summary of this book but also the first line of it!!
First Line Friday!!
“I eat breakfast with my father every mourning. Well I eat. He sits in a wheelchair and stars in whichever direction my mom has pointed I’m. I’f I am lucky, all his droll stays in his mouth. If he is lucky, the sunlight doesn’t fall across his eyes.”
When his dad is caught embezzling funds from half the town, Rob goes from popular lacrosse player to social pariah. Even worse, his father’s failed suicide attempt leaves Rob and his mother responsible for his care.Everyone thinks of Maegan as a typical overachiever, but she has a secret of her own after the pressure got to her last year. And when her sister comes home from college pregnant, keeping it from her parents might be more than she can handle.When Rob and Maegan are paired together for a calculus project, they’re both reluctant to let anyone through the walls they’ve built. But when Maegan learns of Rob’s plan to fix the damage caused by his father, it could ruin more than their fragile new friendship . . .In her compulsively readable storytelling, Brigid Kemmerer pens another captivating, heartfelt novel that asks the question: Is it okay to do something wrong for the right reasons?
