President's Day, Shmesident's Day--It's Before I Fall Day!

So, today is a VERY SPECIAL DAY.

Before I Fall, my debut novel (which comes out in 18 days--eek!) takes place on Friday, February 12th. And TODAY is Friday, February 12th. Which makes today...Before I Fall Day! (I can only hope that my day does not end with a fatal car crash, the way that my main character's does. Yikes.)

In honor of this newly christened holiday, I thought I would post a little teaser from my book, chosen completely at random. (Seriously, I flipped to a random page and chose the first two complete sentences.) Enjoy!

"I'm angry at Rob for not caring about how upset I am, and I'm angry at Kent for caring. I'm angry at everyone and everything, and in that second I fantasize about the cigarette Lindsay's waving catching on the curtains, about fire racing through the room and consuming everyone."

Okay...that's kind of an intense teaser but them's the rules, folks!
