teaser tuesday (83)

Tuesday, May 22, 2012 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted every week by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page (or if you're reading on an electronic device, pick a random number and scroll to that section). Post two or more sentences from that page, along with the book title and author. Share your find with others in the comments at Should Be Reading, and don't give anything vital away!

storybound by marissa burt book cover“Una often told herself that she was invisible.  Perhaps that was the reason people passed her in the halls, their eyes skimming over her slight form as if she were part of the scenery: a desk, a book, a classroom, a girl.  It could also be the reason why Ms. McDonough, perched on her musty old pink chair, talked to her cats about Una as though Una wasn’t there.”

Wow, what a great teaser. A little bit of humor - Ms. McDonough talking to the cats about Una :D - and a little bit of sadness. Makes me want to read the book!

Great teaser, it shows enough to connect to the character and has enough humor to make known that it's not going to be a complete downer :)

The Golden Eagle said...

That's a great teaser! Though sad the character feels the need to be invisible . . .

What a beautiful bookcover! The teaser makes me curious. I've never heard of Marissa Burt, but she is now on my to read-list. :-)
