With the release date of The Back of Wednesday only 1 week away, I figured I'd share with you the (new) first part of the first chapter.
I took out the clairvoyance portion of the book, mainly because I wanted the story to be 100% pure realistic fiction, and I didn't want any doubt or disbelief about Devan's murder threat. Also, having a dream-premonition is cliché, and it seemed like a shortcut to kickstart the book.
I also get a very different vibe writing this story than previous ones. More mature—it rings as a mix of Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girl with a dash of Paper Flowers thrown in. I'm not entirely certain that I'll be sticking with this voice as I continue writing, but we'll see.
A quick preview of the first chapter is before. Read, enjoy, and stay tuned for the entire first chapter, coming out June 14!
