Teaser Tuesday (3)

Teaser Tuesday, a meme hosted by Should Be Reading is really easy and fun to participate in. All you have to do is:

  • 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

 Crossed by Ally Condie

We run forever. I say the words from the poem over and over to the beat of my feet. It almost sounds like someone else's voice. I don't know where I find the air and I keep getting the words wrong: From out our bourne of death and space the flood will wash me far but it doesn't even matter. I never knew that words might not matter.

"Are you saying that for us?" the boy gasps out, the first time he's spoken in hours.

"We're not dead," I say.  No one dead feels this tired. 

So far, Crossed is decent.  One of my big problems with it is that I can barely differentiate between Cassia's voice and Ky's.  Just looking at the excerpt I posted, that could be either one of them.

What're you reading this Tuesday?
