Blogger Book Fair: Meet Lindsey Gray

Gray_lies_inside_coverLies Inside, by Lindsey Gray

Today we are joined by author Lindsey Gray, who is telling us about her novel Lies Inside.

Summary:

How do you say goodbye to the love of your life when you are only twelve years old? Finn O’Malley and Lucy Butler had to figure out how to do just that as Finn left his home in Clarkstown, New York for Two Roads School of Music in California. Being a young talented musician, Finn thought it best for his future but wasn’t sure about leaving Lucy behind.

Now, just one semester short of graduation and a promising future at UCLA, he throws it all away to return home. This leaves his family and friends questioning why.

The Finn that has returned home is not the same boy who left. He’s broken and withdrawn. Lucy and his sister Rylan want nothing more than to bring back the Finn they know and love.

From the moment Finn reconnects with Lucy, he feels the one thing he hasn’t felt in years—hope. As Lucy starts to bring him out of his shell, Finn begins to realize what real love really is.

When his past collides with his future, how will Finn deal with the love he needs and the love he despises? Can Lucy help heal what lies inside?

Excerpt:

Finn laughed and took a big breath. His nostrils filled with a strange scent and he recoiled. “What is that smell?”

Lucy sniffed at the air and wrinkled her nose. “I don’t know. Is something wrong with the car? Maybe you better pull o…ov…er.” Her voice wavered before fading out.

Finn saw Lucy slumped over in her seat. “Luce?” He squeezed her hand, trying to get a response. He pulled the car over to the side of the road and shut it off. He tried to lift his arm to check to see if she was okay, but it was too heavy.

“L—Lu—Luce.” The word came out of his mouth uneven and thick, like everything was in slow motion. He tried to keep his eyes open, but they were so heavy. He closed them and slumped back in his seat.

Finn heard the sound of a car coming up behind them and stopping. His mind swam with the hope that their friends had decided to go home. He heard two doors slam and the sound of footsteps coming toward the car. His hopes were dashed as he realized the muffled voices were not those of his friends. He tried to open his mouth and speak, ask what was going on and who they were, but his jaw wouldn’t move. He heard Lucy’s door open, the click of her seat belt, and the creak of her seat. Silence. He tried to scream, cry out for her, but his body didn’t respond.

A million things ran through his mind all at once, but they all converged to form one coherent thought. Get Lucy! The terror that rapidly engulfed his mind made him realize he would have to fight with every bit of strength he had to do just that.

He wasn’t sure how much time had passed, but the footsteps returned and a crisp chill entered the car as someone opened his door. He felt the release of his seat belt when a body reached across him. His nostrils took in the slightly musky scent of a cologne he would know anywhere. Panic and terror surged throughout his entire body. His mind screamed to react, do something, anything, but nothing happened. He was defenseless, numb while his head lolled against the headrest.

“Get his feet,” a male voice whispered.

He felt two hands grab his legs and lift them out of the car. One set of arms carried his feet and another set gripped under his arms. He tried to hold on, tried to listen to everything around him, but he couldn’t fight the darkness. He slipped into a deep tunnel, not even a thought of Lucy comforted him.

Unfortunately, it was a very familiar feeling.
