Teaser Tuesdays: American Ghost

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!

American Ghost by Janis Owens p. 23

"At the time, she was too young to be farsighted, too inexperienced with human sexuality to realize that a public outing of the Hoyt genetic ladder in the shape of her sweat-glistened, eighteen-year-old body might pack a more powerful punch than she intended, dynamite strong enough to blast her into another life. She was only concerned with the glorious present: walking in the foaming surf; feeding the dolphins off the jetties; lying out side by side on sand-covered blankets, with Sam most solicitous that she not get sunburnt, rubbing on so much Hawaiian Tropic that by the time they made it to the air-conditioned bliss of Taco Bell, she smelled like a walking pina colada."

Ah, to be 18 and at the beach, oblivious!

Interesting. I am curious about the point of view. Who is narrating? Come see my teasers for Necessity's Child by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller and Unremembered by Jessica Brody. Happy reading!
