Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. 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!)
4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week's teaser come from A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker. I'm about half way through and so far, it is a bit predictable, but funny. The whole premise of the novel revolves around a year long marriage education program called "Trying the Knot." The entire senior class is divided into couples that get "married" and have to get jobs and develop and balance a monthly budget. The pairings are random, and not everyone is excited about who they are paired with, least of all Fiona, the narrator and main character.
"I stood rock-still in the field as tryouts began. The sun scorched the top of my forehead, but I didn't budge. I needed every ounce of energy in my body to figure something out. Something was familiar. Something about the way Todd looked at me and spoke to me reminded me of . . .what?
Then it clicked."
