Teaser Tuesday (10): Radiant by Cynthia Hand

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's teaser comes from the following book:


Title: Radiant (Unearthly #2.5)
Author:  Cynthia Hand
Publisher: Harper Teen
Expected Publication: December 4, 2012
Purchase:  Amazon Barnes & Noble

From New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand comes a riveting original novella (available only as an ebook) set in the world of the Unearthly series.

Clara is desperate to get away—from the memories that haunt her in Wyoming and the visions of a future she isn't ready to face—and spending the summer in Italy with her best friend, Angela, should be the perfect escape. . . .

For as long as she can remember, Angela has been told that love is dangerous, that she must always guard her heart. But when she met a mysterious guy in Italy two years ago she was determined to be with him, no matter the costs. Now she must decide whether she can trust Clara with her secret, or if telling her the truth will risk everything she cares about.

Alternating between Angela and Clara's perspectives, Radiant chronicles the unforgettable summer that will test the bounds of their friendship and change their lives forever.


My teaser is: 
"'Beautiful,' he murmured, and I knew that he was talking about
more than the song.  He was gazing at me like I was a butterfly
trapped in his net, like he was tempted to pin me up behind glass even
though he knew he should let me fly away."
                                                                                    - pg 46
I've been looking forward to this novella and, as you can see, I wasted no time getting right to it.  I love this story so much, and I'm very excited to find out what Ms. Hand has in store for these amazing characters.
I'd love to know what your Teaser is!
