Teaser Tuesdays: Twenty Boy Summer - Sarah Ockler

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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 that page
* 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can 41):add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My pick for this week is Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler. I'm only near the beginning of this one but I'm loving it so far so look out for my review some time this week.



Teaser sentences (from page 40):
'After fifteen minutes of hunting and gathering, Frankie emerges from the racks with two armloads of try-ons. A broken fingernail and a slight breathlessness are her only battle scars.'

So, what's your teaser this week?

  7. Oh, shopping. A broken fingernail sounds kind of intense, though. I'm not usually that involved in my shopping (but maybe I'm just not serious enough about it?). Nice teaser!
