Chapter Samplers: Exposed by Kimberly Marcus

Synopsis:
In the dim light of the darkroom, I'm alone, but not for long.
As white turns to gray, Kate is with me.
The background of the dance studio blurred, so the focus is all on her legs extended in a perfect soaring split.
The straight line to my squiggle,
my forever-best friend.


Sixteen-year-old Liz is Photogirl—sharp, focused and confident in what she sees through her camera lens. Confident that she and Kate will be best friends forever.


But everything changes in one blurry night. Suddenly, Kate is avoiding her, and people are looking the other way when she passes in the halls. As the aftershocks from a startling accusation rip through Liz's world, everything she thought she knew about photography, family, friendship and herself shifts out of focus. What happens when the picture you see no longer makes sense? What do you do when you may lose everything you love most? Told in stunning, searingly raw free verse, Exposed is Kimberly Marcus's gut-wrenching, riveting debut and will appeal to fans of Ellen Hopkins, Laurie Halse Anderson and Virginia Euwer Wolff.
Over on RandomBuzzers.com (a great website for book lovers!), there are a bunch of chapter samplers you can read. This is awesome, because if you're interested in a book you can see if it's on the list and read the available section, and see if it's something you'd like to read. The 'shelf' has lots of books from Random House like The Maze Runner by James Dashner. They also have a 'featured' section. Exposed was featured on Random Buzzers a few weeks ago, so I thought I'd go see if they had a chapter sampler. They did! You can read it HERE.


This book seems really interesting, and unique! It's written in free-verse form, and I've never read a whole free-verse book. Also, I love photography, especially film photography. I'm adding this one to my wish list!


Thanks for reading!
