Teaser Tuesdays: Revolution




Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

Grab your current read. Open 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!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly p. 49

"You were never here when you were supposed to be. Now you're not supposed to be here and you are."

Andi screams this at her father who has come to see her after finding out she's failing all her classes, and upon finding her mother's deteriorated mental state, he insists on checking her mother into a hospital and taking Andi to Paris. God forbid, Paris! Only a teenager would be mad about that. I personally missed out on a trip to Southern Europe when I was 14 because I wanted to go to summer camp and see my friends instead. Teenagers can be crazy.

Teenagers are crazy. I'll go to Paris for her. You know there is going to be high drama when teenagers are around. Thanks for sharing this teaser. If you get a chance, mine is here.

Oh Jennifer Donnelly - I loved her Tea Rose and Winter Rose books, and am (not-so) patiently waiting for the Wild Rose to come out. I might have to fill the waiting time with this read.

What do you think about Revolutions? I got really tired of whiny Andi but adored all the information of the French Revolution.
