Dead Perfect by P.G. Shriver Blog Tour Excerpt


Author P.G. Shriver has stopped by today with an excerpt for the Dead Perfect Blog Tour hosted by Young Adult Novel Reader.

SYNOPSIS: 
MEL: My lifelong dreams never included falling in love. Graduating top of the class, going to college somewhere far away and starting a life in a place where my alcoholic mother could never find me were the first three goals on my list. Then the unexpected auto accident with Mother, after her regular doses of vodka, altered all of that. With her gone, my life and my perspective changed forever. 

DAVIS: Desperate to find Joanie so I could break free, I returned to my old school. The search led me to her, my Aphrodite, a familiar lost look in her soulful eyes. Fantasies of her forced reasoning from my mind. I had to meet her! Once fallen, would her love for me survive the ghostly secrets haunting us? 


Excerpt:
"You want that? We could have that now, if we had some bread," she teased. I couldn’t help myself, running over to her I grabbed her around the waist and swung her playfully in a circle until she broke free, running a few paces before my arms found her again and we fell over on the ground, rolling downhill the opposite direction from the lake and out of view of the passersby. She squealed as we rolled. I laughed, my deep voice contrasting her high pitch. She couldn't believe I tackled her, the surprise evident in her eyes, her rounded mouth. I couldn't believe I had either. But there we lay, side by side on our backs, our hands barely touching, laughing and huffing, trying to catch our breath, staring at the blue sky through the branches of trees above us. "Where did you come from?" she joked. "I could ask the same of you," I rolled onto one elbow, bracing my head with my hand so I could see her perfectly flushed cheeks.
