Teaser Tuesday: House of Ivy & Sorrow by Natalie Whipple

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I sucked in my tears and guilt. "I was so scared. I wasn't thinking straight. The man hardly said anything, but he carried...something. Shadows. Darkness. Anger.  It kept oozing out of him. Not sure what it was, except it was bad."
This week my teaser comes  from House of Ivy & Sorrow by Natalie Whipple. I got this eARC from HarperTeen via Edelweiss. The book will be released on April 15.

Here is the description:
Transparent author Natalie Whipple is back with another refreshing blend of realistic romance and light-hearted humor with a one-of-a-kind paranormal touch. Fans of Charmed, Kiersten White's Paranormalcy trilogy, and Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys won't want to miss this spellbinding contemporary tale of magic, first love, and high-stakes danger.

Jo Hemlock is not your typical witch. Outside the walls of her grandmother's ivy-covered house, she's kept her magical life completely separate from her life in high school. But when the Curse that killed her mother resurfaces, it threatens to destroy not only her life but her grandmother's too—and keeping her secret may no longer be an option.
