Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Here are the rules: Grab your current read. Open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, and 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 & author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This teaser is from the book Jumpstart the World by Catherine Ryan Hyde:
"I clam up when I'm upset. But realizing that didn't exactly fix it. I just sat the, stony, watching the lights flicker off and then on again. Listening to the clatter of the metal wheels on the tracks. Feeling the rocking that is pure subway, that just doesn't feel like any other transportation in the world." -page 80
The book is okay...yet I'm not sure I really like it. I love Catherine Ryan Hyde's books (Pay It Forward, Chasing Windmills and more), yet this one is not one of the better ones...For a summary, check out this post from The Library Lurker. I entered the (now closed) contest and that is how I got the book! =)
