Dusty Reads is a weekly post featuring a book that has been sitting unread on your home shelf for some time. To participate, add your name to the linky and try to visit a few of the others. Books don't have to be 'x' years old. If you've had the book for a few months without reading it, it's dusty! This meme is hosted by the lovely Giselle @ Xpresso Reads.
featuring To Save A Life by Jim & Rachel Britts
But I Love Him
Author: Jim and Rachel Britts
Publisher: Outreach Publishing
Published: October 1, 2009
Based on the movie (in theaters January 22, 2010), the novel is a story about the real-life challenges of teens and their choices. For anyone who has struggled with regret, loneliness or pain, it is a story of hope. For all of us, To Save A Life is a story about living a life of significance. Through Jake's journey, readers are challenged to answer the question: what's your life going to be about?
Jake and Roger grew up as best friends. But in high school, Jake becomes a star athlete who has it all: a college scholarship and the perfect girl, an ideal life that comes at the exclusion of his childhood friend. Meanwhile, Roger no longer fits in anywhere and becomes tired of always being pushed aside. He makes a tragic move that spins Jake's world out of control. As Jake searches for answers, he begins a journey that will change his life forever.

Summary taken from: Goodreads.
It was a late Friday night and I had just gotten off work and decided to pop into the local bookstore on my way home. I had just gotten paid that week and I wanted a couple of new books. I spotted this one sitting on a YA table in a center aisle and picked it up, because I thought it looked interesting. I had seen the movie and wanted to read the book. I also ended up buying a copy of Nightshade by Andrea Cremer with the original prettier cover.
