Excerpt from Nano!

I've decided to post an excerpt from my NaNoWriMo project, Rockabilly Romance. If you haven't been paying attention, it is a young adult novel and it is in the very early stages of development, so even this passage is subject to change. I love the title though. If it gets published, I hope they don't change that :(

"I slowly turned to face him. Shadows fell in the hollows of his face. Tom was beautiful under the night sky, but he wasn’t Jesse. He wasn’t the boy I saw behind my eyes when I laid down at night. Still I wanted to kiss him. My lips pulled for his. I wanted to feel some kind of warmth, some physical connection to what my heart felt inside. But, no. It wasn’t fair to Tom. I turned back to my tree, running my fingers over the crude engraving. I didn’t want to leave it. Not ever. But I had to remember the reason I was here. Not the real reason, but the cover story."

Make ya wanna read it? Huh? Huh?
