It’s been a while since I last did Teaser Tuesday, so let’s do it again. :)
TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
- 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.
- You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
This week I’m taking a break from all fantasy/dystopia reads and settling for something in the ordinary, something that I can sort of relate to. I can’t relate to it 100%, but you get what I mean. This week’s read is Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway.
California high school student Audrey Cuttler dumps self-involved Evan, the lead singer of a little band called The Do-Gooders. Evan writes, “Audrey, Wait!,” a break-up song that’s so good it rockets up the billboard charts. And Audrey is suddenly famous!
Now rabid fans are invading her school. People is running articles about her arm-warmers. The lead singer of the Lolitas wants her as his muse. (And the Internet is documenting her every move!) Audrey can’t hang out with her best friend or get with her new crush without being mobbed by fans and paparazzi.
Take a wild ride with Audrey as she makes headlines, has outrageous amounts of fun, confronts her ex on MTV, and gets the chance to show the world who she really is.
It’s a hilarious read so far, and I love every character, especially crazy best friend Victoria! I’m only 1/3 done and I’m having so much fun, and I wonder what else can happen. :D
Here’s the teaser, one of the funniest parts I’ve read in the book so far. It’s kind of long, but I can’t not share it.
Victoria paused and I can tell she was trying not to smile. “Did you just say ‘frolic’?”
“Is it not a word?”
“Who the hell says ‘frolic’?”
I spun the lock on my locker and waited for it to stick like it always did on 33. “I say frolic,” I told her. “And more people should.”
“They should say frolic or actually frolic?”
“Both.” (p. 47-48)
Such an inane-sounding conversation, but it’s these parts that make this novel feel real. Don’t you think?
Share your teasers in the comments area — I wanna see what you’re reading. :)
