- 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.
- Share the title and author of the book, so we can investigate on our own if we like the teaser you've given!
- Please avoid spoilers!
**Quantity of sentences may vary, depending on how long it takes to finish the thought within those line parameters. Teasers should still make sense!
This week's teaser showcases... ::drum roll! buhduhduhduhduhduhduh::
The Dread Crew: Pirates of the Backwoods by Kate Inglis! I was fortunate enough to win this book through a giveaway on Kate's web site, Kate...Tells Stories (and for those looking for more of her writing, she also runs the blog sweet|salty). It finally arrived on my doorstep yesterday, and I just started reading it, but we're off to a good start! I didn't even open the book at random for the teaser this time because I wanted to share how much I absolutely love the first sentence of Chapter 1. (Sorry, rule-sticklers, but I think if you've already made peace with Whodunit Wednesday, you'll also be ok with me not following Normal Teaser Procedure -- or NTP, as we in the biz like to say):
"The boy was never seen without his backpack, although naturally, no one knew what it was for, because a pirate tracker is only a pirate tracker if that pirate tracker is so in secret."
If you're into YA (or pirates), you should pick this one up! I'm so excited I could squeal.
