As she went to climb to the top of the slide again, her little face screwed up and she waved a hand by her ear like she was shooing a bug away.

Her father spotted it though. Not a bug.
This week my teaser comes from Spinning Starlight by R. C. Lewis. I got this eARC from NetGalley. Here is the description from Amazon:
Sixteen-year-old heiress and paparazzi darling Liddi Jantzen hates  the spotlight. But as the only daughter in the most powerful tech family  in the galaxy, it's hard to escape it. So when a group of men shows up  at her house uninvited, she assumes it's just the usual media-grubs.  That is, until shots are fired.

Liddi escapes,  only to be pulled into an interplanetary conspiracy more complex than  she ever could have imagined. Her older brothers have been caught as  well, trapped in the conduits between the planets. And when their captor  implants a device in Liddi's vocal cords to monitor her speech, their  lives are in her hands: One word, and her brothers are dead.

Desperate  to save her family from a desolate future, Liddi travels to another  world, where she meets the one person who might have the skills to help  her bring her eight brothers home-a handsome dignitary named Tiav. But  without her voice, Liddi must use every bit of her strength and wit to  convince Tiav that her mission is true. With the tenuous balance of the  planets deeply intertwined with her brothers' survival, just how much is  Liddi willing to sacrifice to bring them back?

Haunting and mesmerizing, this retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Wild Swans  fuses all the heart of the classic tale with a stunning, imaginative  world in which a star-crossed family fights for its very survival.
