Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday 
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

~Grab your current read
~Open to a random page
~Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on the page
~BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! ( make sure that what you share doesn't give away too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)

~Share the title & author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

I stayed up late trying to finish but I'm almost done. I thought this was a good one. 

The Cinderella Moment 
by Jennifer Kloester 

Lily pulled Angel to her feet. Snapping on the light, she drew her to the mirror.
“Look,” said Lily.
Angel looked at Lily’s face, heart-shaped and animated, her eyes alight with mischief and then at her own puzzled reflection.
“See?” said Lily, pointing to the mirror.
“What?” asked Angel, mystified.
“We could be sisters.”
The penny dropped. “No way! Don’t even think about it.”
“But why not?” Lily looked surprised. “We’d have an awesome time—you in Paris, me in London. Think of it, Angel—two whole weeks in the city of your dreams and no one would ever know.”
“Oh yeah? What about your grandmother?”
“No. That’s why it’s so brilliant. She hasn’t seen me since I was five—not even a photo—she’d never know you weren’t me.”
“Other people would know.”
“Nuh-uh.” Lily looked triumphant. “I haven’t been back to France—no one in Paris knows me.”
“But what about your dad? And Margot? What’s to stop her turning up and exposing me?” demanded Angel.
“No chance,” said Lily. “When Dad phones he never knows where I am—so London, Paris, New York—it doesn’t matter. As for Margot,” she wrinkled her nose, “she’ll be way too busy sucking up to the in-crowd out in the Hamptons.”
“If you go to Paris in my place, the Comtesse will take you to all the best couture houses. Jacqueline Montague says she knows all the top designers, including Antoine Vidal. Think about it, Angel—you could meet him.”
Angel hesitated. Imagine meeting Antoine Vidal! And seeing the great couturiers: Chanel, Dior, Versace, Givenchy, Karl Lagerfeld, Balenciaga, Oscar de la Renta, and Vidal. She might get to see his fall collection, after all.
