7 Things

Paula tagged me for the fun Lucky 7 Meme going around the blog-sphere. It looked like fun; I enjoy sharing {and reading} random excerpts from books-in-progress. So, without further ado...

The rules - Open current novel-in-progress and:
  • Go to page 77.
  • Go to line 7.
  • Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences, or paragraphs as they are written.
  • Tag 7 new authors.
 Seven lines from the currently-querying YA suspense novel, Those Who Trespass:

His response makes me feel like a little sister again. “Why didn't you tell me? Why didn't Shaw mention it?”

“I thought we should tell you. Shaw wanted to probe and find out how much you knew.” If I didn't know better, I'd say he looks apologetic.

“Well, I knew absolutely nothing.” I close my eyes. Swallow. “If Dad had the files to begin with, why did the FBI think Jake had them?”

“After your dad turned himself in for your mom's murder, he swore up and down that he hadn't given them to Colette. We couldn't find them when we searched the house. Jake was--is--the only other option.”

That's it! Doesn't make much sense by itself, even though I finished out that last paragraph. And now I'm going to break a rule and tag no one...if you want to do this, please do, and enjoy! :)
