Shadow of a Girl Blog Tour+ Giveaway

Shadow of a Girl by Shannon Greenland

Publication Date: September 19, 2016

Publisher: Entangled Teen

Use cash and keep moving.

After I ran away from home, these were the two rules that dictated my life. Scoring a job as a roadie fit perfectly for what I needed. Traveling, cash, and life out of the spotlight. But when my path collides with West, the lead singer of Bus Stop, I can’t seem to stay out of his spotlight—especially since we’ll be touring together for an entire year.

West is determined to break down my walls. He won’t give up. And little by little they come crumbling. But if he knew what lurked behind them, he wouldn’t be so eager to get rid of them.

The more time we spend together, the more the lines of our friendship become blurred. He makes me dream of things I never thought possible. But while our friendship has been evolving into a romance, my secrets have been closing in. And just when I’ve decided to reveal my past to West, I’m confronted by it. The cost of my freedom could ruin the life of the guy I love…

Excerpt:

My lifeline, is gone. It’s all me now. The rest of

this is up to me. I look at myself in the mirror. I look scared,

yes, but elated, too. And it’s the elated that bolsters me for

the rest. Taking the scissors, I hold out a long clump of my

hair…

Your hair’s so pretty. So long. Never cut it.

Clenching my jaw, I put the scissors all the way at my

chin and whack it right off. With it, a harsh laugh escapes me.

I hold the long blond chunk out in front of me, and a tiny

smile creases my lips. If this is what rebelliousness feels like,

no wonder Gideon is so afraid of it.

I cut the rest of my hair all the way up to my chin and

tear into the red dye. I stay in the handicap stall for thirty

minutes. Someone comes in to use the one beside me, and

then leaves. I spend my time staying as still as possible, like

even if I move somehow Gideon will know it. Finally it’s time

to rinse the dye out, and as I do I hear the announcement for

my bus to Boston.

I shove everything in the garbage, and I wedge a baseball

hat over my wet head, grab my duffel and guitar, and hurry

across the brightly lit station and out into the loading bay.

I don’t think I breathe the whole time. And I don’t lift my

head, but from under my cap my eyes flick back and forth

across the area. Scanning. Scanning.

“I.D. and ticket,” the driver says.

With clammy, shaky fingers I hold out both, and he

takes them. If he notices my unsteady hands, he doesn’t

mention them. Then he’s waving me on, and I’m boarding.

I’m boarding!

I find a seat half way and tuck in, lowering my cap even

farther and surreptitiously staring out the windows. One-by-one

people continue to board and I don’t make eye contact

with any of them. An elderly gentleman sits down beside me

and proceeds to fall asleep.

Eventually, boarding is done. The driver takes his seat.

And slowly, we pull away. As we do, I take what feels like

the first breath I’ve had.

My new name is Eve, and as of this

moment, I’m officially a runaway.
