Teaser Tuesdays: The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy

Teaser Tuesdays

It’s time for another “Teaser Tuesday!”

This feature (or meme)  is one I discovered on my friend Kim’s site Book Munchies, and is hosted by MizB of the Should Be Reading blog. For those of you who would like to play along at home (or more specifically on your homepage), here is how Teaser Tuesdays work.

– Grab (one of) your current read(s) and open it 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!)
– Remember to include the title & author, too, so that your followers and any Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their reading lists if your tease has captured their attention!

“I was in a locker.
Perhaps you have some questions for me.

Where was the locker?
It was in the math hallway. The hallway also contained TV cameras and reality stars and the love of my life.

Was the locker locked?
We’ll get to that.

Oh and by the way, WHY? Why in the name of God-slash-Buddha-slash-Zeus, in the name of all things holy, WHY, why, why, why? WHY were you IN A LOCKER?
Yeah, that was going through my head too.”
