Teaser Tuesday 15
1 June 2010
This is how it works:
- Grab your current read.
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us two (2) ‘teaser’ sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
- You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your ‘teaser’ from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
- Please avoid spoilers!
Since The Long Price Quartet was so brilliant, I don’t want to read anything fantastic for a while. So, it’s Child Star by Matt Thorne this week, since – depressingly – reality television has stopped being something dystopian a novelist made up.
Realising we weren’t going to go away, Wendy looked at me and said, ‘Do you like Madonna, Gerald?’
Perdita tried to cover her mouth as she exploded into sudden, shocked laughter. I didn’t understand what was funny, but knew the joke was at my expense. (p. 83)
Oh, I’ve just realised it ought to be ‘somewhere between lines 7 and 12’. I’m afraid I replaced that with ‘close my eyes and jab a finger at it’ weeks ago…
