Teaser Tuesday: The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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'd traded American History with Mr. Simpson for Contemporary World Issues with Dr. Clark. we were currently broken into pairs, discussing the effect of internet censorship in East and Central Asia. Or at least that was the assignment. I had a feeling most people were actually discussing Contemporary Hardwicke Issues. Namely me. And my sister. Who apparently fixed problems for a living.
This week my teaser comes from The Fixer by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I bought this one this past summer. Here is the description from Amazon:
When sixteen-year-old Tess Kendrick is sent to live with her older sister, Ivy, she has no idea that the infamous Ivy Kendrick is Washington D.C.'s #1 "fixer," known for making politicians' scandals go away for a price. No sooner does Tess enroll at Hardwicke Academy than she unwittingly follows in her sister's footsteps and becomes D.C.'s premier high school fixer, solving problems for elite teens.

Secrets pile up as each sister lives a double life. . . . until their worlds come crashing together and Tess finds herself in the middle of a conspiracy with one of her classmates and a client of Ivy's. Suddenly, there is much more on the line than good grades, money, or politics, and the price for this fix might be more than Tess is willing to pay.

Perfect for fans of Pretty Little Liars and Heist Society, readers will be clamoring for more in this exciting new series.


  1. Sounds intriguing. I like stories with this plot line. And a female fixer makes it even more exciting.

    Here's my TT - http://fuonlyknew.com/2015/11/17/teaser-tuesdays-136-h20/

  2. I was slightly hesitant until I read that it was perfect for PLL fans! That's my guilty pleasure right there, so maybe I should check this one out asap! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. This sounds intriguing. Funny how many "young persons' " books are interesting for adults, too. I'm reading an Avi historical fiction about 1983 New York called City of Orphans: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-11y

  4. OOh intriguing teaser! Hope you enjoy the rest!
