Alone Together Blog Tour

Hi everyone! I’m kickstarting this month with a blog tour  of ‘Alone Together’ by Sarah J. Donovan organised by YA Bound Book Tours. This is a really interesting story that I can’t wait to get my hands on!

Official Goodreads Summary:

Sadie Carter’s life is a mess, as wavy and tangled as her unruly hair. At 15, she is barely surviving the chaos of her large Catholic family. When one sister becomes pregnant and another is thrown out, her unemployed dad hides his depression, and her mom hides a secret. Sadie, the peacekeeper and rule-follower, has had enough. The empty refrigerator, years of hand-me-downs, and all the secrets have to stop. She longs for something more and plans her escape.

However, getting arrested was not her plan. Falling in love was not her plan. With the help of three mysterious strangers—a cop, a teacher, and a cute boy—maybe Sadie will find the strength to defy the rules and do the unexpected.

Told in verse, Sarah J. Donovan’s debut Alone Together has secrets, romance, struggle, sin, and redemption, all before Sadie blows out her 16 candles. It’s a courageously honest look at growing up in a big family.

It’s a story told in verse! Have you ever heard about such a thing? Well at least I haven’t! If the summary alone wasn’t enough to convince you I have a juicy excerpt that will have you falling over your feet to get to this book!

EXCERPT

SILENCE IN NUMBERS

No one is home.

No one.

#1 left at 18 to raise her own family—

done being a second mother to the brood.

#2 left at 18 to train for triathlons—

practically ran to Arizona the day he graduated.

#3 was kicked out at 18—

an unforgivable sin, but we don’t talk about her.

I don’t know them all that well.

They never come home.

#4 and #5 left to go to college—

have jobs on campus in the cafeteria,

wish I could see those boys washing dishes.

#6 left at 18 for restaurant management training—

didn’t have the smarts for college,

wish I could see her running a crew.

I don’t know them all that well.

They never come home.

#7 runs a drive-thru

passing the time with college classes

until her boyfriend proposes.

#8 bakes croissants

saving every bit of dough

until she can plan her escape.

#10 runs with a gang

taking #11 to babysitting gigs

until she sneaks out to party.

I don’t know them all that well.

I was busy shoplifting.
