Readers are saying…

“FIVE STARS: Very interesting and easy to fall into. As you read it gets more and more interesting, and I loved all the build up and excitement to the end. It ended just as I hoped it would, and the whole “Lord of The flies” with the boys was great!” –Mom with a Kindle

  

“I was drawn into the story and didn’t want to put it down… I loved it, and I will be looking for more from this author in the future.” –New Adult Addiction

“Exciting, filled with action and adventure, and with just enough romance that it didn’t drive the story, but it most definitely will satisfy those who love a great love story.” –Roxy’s Reviews

  

“FIVE STARS: A wonderful read with suspense, drama, romance, and even a band of what I call the demented lost boys.” –What’s Beyond Forks

BEHIND THE STARS

Excerpts:

Behind the Stars

By Leigh Talbert Moore

© 2014, Leigh T. Moore

The guards moved among us, placing dentist-office Dixie cups of what looked like water in front of everyone. A separate guard came to where I sat on the floor, clutching my knees. She lightly took my arm.

“Please return to the table.” Her voice was smooth. “You’ve had a shock. Have some water.”

I wasn’t about to drink anything they gave us. It was Day One all over again, only this time, it was Guyana. We were all being served the Kool-Aid. Next stop, mass graves.

Stupidly, my friends and fellow prisoners had no such qualms. Didn’t anybody watch the History channel? I stared as they all took shaky sips without hesitation.

“Just take a small sip.” The female guard was still with me. “It’ll calm you.”

My throat constricted. My whole body was on revolt. Shaking my head, I didn’t meet her eyes. I only stared at the white cup of water. Braxton was at my side, and he drained his. What the hell made him do that? Did he want to die?

Seconds ticked past and nothing happened. Nobody passed out. Nobody did anything strange—except forget what we’d just witnessed here. Braxton picked up his fork to finish his lunch. They all did. Like one of us had not just been taken out “swiftly and finally.”

Only he had, and I was reeling from the shock.

“Hearing that story makes me wish I could have been the one to protect you,” he said.

“I don’t need your protection,” I sniffed. “I’m little, but I can take care of myself.”

“Everyone needs help. Sometimes.” He reached up and slid the hair back from his face exposing the scar on his cheek.

I didn’t know how to answer that. I still didn’t know how he’d gotten those scars, but more than that, I didn’t know who I wanted protecting me now.

I stepped through the fence. “I guess this is good-night,” I whispered.

“Sleep well, doctor.”

I shook my head and sneaked past the cabins across the dark yard and into the dormitory. Once inside I stood for several minutes with my face pressed against the doorjamb.

Why was this happening? I wasn’t this kind of person. Other girls got their feelings all mixed up over boys, but I didn’t. That question had been settled in my mind years ago, and yet here I was acting like a starry-eyed little twit. I was failing in my job to rescue us. Everyone was counting on me, and here I was useless, fighting this battle with myself. I had to get it together. I had to get myself back on track, for all of us.
