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!
Today's Teaser comes from The Changeover by Margaret Mahy. I just got it from the library this morning, so I haven't started it yet. I am very excited to read it, as it was recommended to me by Sarah Rees Brennan, when we interviewed her for the library podcast. We were talking about favorite YA books and I mentioned that I enjoyed The Tricksters also by Margaret Mahy. Ms Brennan said The Changeover is one of her YA favorite books and that I should read it. Who am I to argue with (or ignore the advice of) such a great author?
"Chant --" he exclaimed suddenly. "Cut and run! Go while you still can. Forget your brother, sprint away down the drive, open the gate and get out into real life again. Find some noce boy with a real heart, fall in love, have kids, grow old and die like a real human being, not an imaginary one."
~ p. 134, The Changeover by Margaret Mahy
