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 teaser
What if I didn't want to move on just yet? What if that medal reminded me that the guy I'd trusted most in this world shot people, shot me, shot himself? Why couldn't she see that accepting the school's "thanks," in that light, was painful to me? Like gratitude would be the only possibly emotion I could feel now. Gratitude that I'd lived. Gratitude that I'd been forgiven. Gratitude that they'd recognized that I'd saved the lives of other Garvin students.
So far--and I am not quite halfway through the book--this one is every bit as stunning as I expected. The writing is so clean and simple and painfully honest and I really, really love it.
