Teaser Tuesday: Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between by Jennifer E. Smith

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.
To 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!

Hello, Goodbye, and Everything in Between by Jennifer E. Smith.

Hello, Goodbye, and
Everything in Between – Poppy

“And the idea is to start at the beginning.”
“So this is a chronological scavenger hunt then.”
“It’s not a scavenger hunt at all. Think of it more like a refresher course.”
“A refresher course in what?”
She smiles at him over the top of the car. “Us.”
— Chapter 1

Just one teaser today for two reasons: I don’t want to spoil any of it for you and I have a really hard time right now to find a place that would make any sort of sense without context. So there you have it, one teaser from the very beginning.
This book is slightly different from Jennifer E. Smith’s usual plot lines as this is not so much about a couple getting to know each other and falling in love but a couple getting to un-know each other with all the things they think are true about the other. It’s highly sort of heartbreaking and romantic at the same time, and since I think I know the outcome all the more so.
I’m almost certain that ultimately I won’t like this as much as The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, but then again that one is hard to top. Maybe it’s the general topic. There is always hope so maybe things will turn out alright.

Are you the clean break sort of person? Not necessarily in the sense of romantic relationships but as a general way of dealing with endings? I’m an “end with terror than terror without end” sort of person I think ... let me know in the comments if you like and share your teasers.

Interesting teaser. Smith is an author that I keep meaning to read. My YA teaser this week comes from Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch. Happy reading!
