Technically, this week and last week are my summer holidays. On the 30th I start work and have a placement for my university program, so I’ll be busy for the rest of the summer. In honour of it being my vacation, I’m reading a summer book! The Summer of Firsts and Lasts by Terra Elan McVoy is a cute summer read so far! Here’s my teaser:
“What’s important about these nicknames,” I finish, standing in front of my fellow campers, reading my completed piece, “is that they were something we created. Us. Together. For and with each other. And while the names our parents gave us are still important, are still who we are, these names we call each other ring in our ears with a different - with a chosen - kind of power.”
This teaser is from Violet’s POV. She’s the middle child, between Daisy, the youngest, and Calla, the oldest. I really loved this part because it shows the reader the special connection that these three sisters have. She talks all about the nicknames they gave each other (like Cow, ZeeZee, Sissie, Vivi, and more) and how they came to be. So far, this is a really cute book and I think I’ll enjoy the journeys that each sister takes individually throughout the summer camp.
Feel free to share your teasers in the comments! I’d love to see what you’re reading.
