Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  • 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!

I was then led through a concert of doors - smudgy revolving doors, glass doors, heavy wooden doors with frosted windows in them - and deposited in my "room", where I lay down on my bed and stared at the ceiling and started breathing really fast before I realized that there was really no point in doing that. But rather than describe the psychotic carousal of anger and deadened acceptance I experienced that night, here is a portrait of the Braddock County Juvenile Detention Center.

    Psychotic arousal of anger? What is the character mad about?...


  2. Iliana Says:

    Oh this sounds interesting. Is this a YA book?


  3. Sandy Nawrot Says:

  6. Melody Says:

    Alice - Almost everything in his lief. You see, he comes from a broken family and to make things worse, he has an abusive stepfather.

    Iliana - I checked the genre from the site but it didn't say it's a YA novel, so I take it as a general fiction.

    Sandy - It sure is!

    Violet - I'm enjoying the book so far as it's getting intense.

    Julia - It sure seems so to Jacob (the guy's name) but I hope that there'd be a turn of events of this story.
