One of my favourite books of 2012 and possibly EVER is Ten Tiny Breaths by the very talented K.A. Tucker. I said it once and I’ll say it again – this story moved me, shocked me, made me purr, it broke my heart in so many little pieces and then it put them all back together, leaving me in awe. It came as no surprise that this book received such an overwhelmingly positive reaction from its readers that it was very quickly snatched up by Atria in a four-book deal.
The second book will be the story of Kacey’s sister, Livie, during her first year of college and it is coming to us in a few short months. Today, I am honoured to give you the gorgeous cover of One Tiny Lie…
Expected release date: 11 June 2013
Livie has always been the stable one of the two Cleary sisters, handling her parents’ tragic death and Kacey’s self-destructive phase with strength and maturity. But underneath that exterior is a little girl hanging onto the last words her father ever spoke to her. “Make me proud,” he had said. She promised she would…and she’s done her best over the past seven years with every choice, with every word, with every action.
Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school, and meet a good, respectable guy that she’s going to someday marry. What isn’t part of her plan are Jell-O shots, a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say ‘no’ to, and Ashton, the gorgeous captain of the men’s rowing team. Definitely him. He’s an arrogant ass who makes Livie’s usually non-existent temper flare and everything she doesn’t want in a guy. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who happens to fits Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton?
As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn’t have, she’s forced to let go of her last promise to her father and, with it, the only identity that she knows.
