Teaser Tuesdays- August 18

Hey everybody! Time for a teaser for the first time in... about a month? Yikes.

Anyways, todays teaser is brought to you by Laurie Halse Anderson's *Wintergirls*. And also the letter P. And viewers like you (did I quote PBS right?)

So the rules to this lovely Tuesday occasion are kind of like follows:

1.Grab your current read/ the book closest to you.

2.Flip to a random page.

3.Pick some interesting sentences that might make someone want to read that book desperately.

4.Make sure you don't include spoilers! Also, don't pick something BOR-ing. (That part is my little addendum to the official rules :D)

(Mine's kind of long... but if I cut it off it won't make sense.)
****************************
"Wait." Jennifer grab my arm. For the first time since they loaded me on the stretcher she looks me in the eye. "David doesn't want me to say this to you, but too bad. I love you, Lia. When I married your father, I swore to love you like you were my own. But you hurt my little girl."
She shakes with anger.
"You hurt her by starving yourself, you hurt her with your lies, and by fighting everybody who tries to help you. Emma can only sleep a couple of hours at night now. She's haunted by nightmares about monsters that eat our whole family. She says they eat us slowly, so we feel their sharp teeth."
"I'm-" I start.
"No."

*****************************

I'd just like to add that the review for this book will be the hardest I'll ever encounter. Have any of you read it? I'm going to be shocked if it doesn't win countless awards. I can't think of something to convey how wonderful it is.

Ciao Bella! -Meggin

Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls: Moving Day
By Meg Cabot

'No one likes a braggart." Mom said.
"What's a braggart?" I asked.
"Someone who brags a lot." Mom replied.
"Like Brittany Hauser? She's always going on about how, for her tenth Birthday, her Mom is going to rent a limo and take all the girls in her class to the Build A Bear store, and every girl is going to get to build her own bear, then go to Pizza Hut to have individual pizzas, then take the limo home."
"Exactly like that," Mom said. "That is a good example of a braggart. Don't be like that." She flicked off my bedside lamp. "Now, go to sleep, Allie."
But as soon as I heard the steps stop creaking - which meant that Mom was all the way downstairs and was another good thing about this new house, I was discovering...you always knew when when a parent was coming up or down the stairs - I turned my bedside lamp on again and got out my notebook from under the bed.
Then I wrote down 'Nobody likes a braggart.' in my book of rules.
It was my first rule for the new house. I had a feeling I was going to learn a lot of good rules in this house. Then I closed my book, hid it beneath the bed, got back under the covers, turned out the light and closed my eyes.
Because Mom was right. I had a LOT to do tomorrow.'

Sorry it's REALLY long! I loved yours.
