Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two “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 teasers!

I was excited to read this new novel by Jandy Nelson and so far it’s just as good as her first (The Sky is Everywhere). She has a very unique writing style and uses such unusual imagery–a bit quirky but strangely beautiful–that it’s pure pleasure to read one of her books.
