Teasers: GIRL LOST by Nazarea Andrews

So a few days ago I got to present you all with the cover reveal for GIRL LOST.  As I said then, I am so excited to read and review this for you all.  Peter Pan was a childhood favorite (actually, I was determined I was Peter Pan and constantly trying to fly off of things that were much too high), so this one is probably my most anticipated release of 2014. 
The review won't come for a while, but what I do get to do is share special teasers and excerpts with you all once a week.  SQUEEEE!   So, here we go.  Week one of GIRL LOST teasers: 


Northern was supposed to be a fresh start—a place where people didn’t know who I was or how I had spent years in and out of mental institutes. People didn't know about my parents death or the island no one heard of. But when Peter sits next to me in lit class, I can’t stop the memories, and I don’t want to. He looks too much like the boy from the island, and despite my best intentions, coaxes my secrets from me.
He’s gorgeous, irresistible, a little mad, and completely lost—we are a pair of broken cogs in a world neither of us truly fits into. And he listens when I talk, about the past and the terrifying future. He is somehow gentle and fierce, heartbreaking in his devotion and savage in his defense.
When Belle, his best friend, shows up, pale and lovely and sick, Peter pulls away from me, a startling withdrawal. It’s a relationship that scares and confuses me. She is at times warm and friendly, and other times is violent and unpredictable.
Peter says that he wants me, but refuses to let himself get close. And there are secrets, surrounding both of us, that border on nightmares. As the memories close in, as Belle gets sicker and more violent, I’m torn between what is true and what I believe, and what this magical boy knows about my mysterious past.

*Suitable for 17+. A romantic contemporary retelling of the boy who never grew up.
