Question: 
Give us a sneak! What are you reading? Tell us about a fun or fail scene in your current read.

Right now I'm reading




Title: A Song For Julia
Author: Charles Sheehan-Miles
Genre: New Adult Romance





This is a really beautiful story so far. There was a really touching scene where Julia connects with her boyfriend's brother Sean, who has Asperger's. It was wonderfully written, with Julia genuinely respecting Sean. 


"They do the same stuff to me sometimes. Call me names. Push me around."
She put her right arm around his shoulder. Usually, when someone touches Sean, he moves away and quickly. He didn't this time.
"It gets better"
"How?" he asked, his voice full of grief.
"Time" She said. "Distance"
"But you said you'd never trust anyone ever again. Why did you tell me?"
"Because you're special. You're just like me. So I know I can trust you"
