Teaser Tuesdays: Commencement

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!

Commencement by J. Courtney Sullivan p. 10

"They wore jeans or cotton sundresses; they had touches of lip gloss and mascara on their faces, and smooth, long hair. Then there were the girls leading the meeting: Jenna the Monster Truck; two other seniors about her size, both named Lisa, both with cropped boy haircuts; and a junior named Becky, who looked like she might be positively gorgeous if only she gave a damn about her appearance."

The clash between the freshmen (oops, sorry, first-years!) and upperclassmen at Smith College was pretty striking. Celia wonders if they'll all look like they don't care soon.

Sounds like an unusual group. I love "Jenna the Monster Truck." What a great description!
My Teaser is from SEVEN LITTLE WORDS.
