Teaser Tuesdays: Your Voice in My Head


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!

Your Voice in My Head by Emma Forrest p. 19

"At the same time that I've graduated from cutting my body to cutting my face, I have started to worry, terribly, about the mental health of people I have never met. "I would prefer," says Dr. R in the week before my suicide, "that you stop sending prison packages to Robert Downey Junior." "

This teaser gives you a great feel for the book, as Emma is mentally disturbed yet funny, and occasionally a name-dropper.

Darkly funny. And what a telling phrase: "in the week before my suicide." Great teaser. If you get a chance, mine is here.
