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 (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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My very first Teaser Tuesday! This week’s teaser is from Ten by Gretchen McNeil. (Expected publication: September 18th 2012 by Balzer + Bray)

From Goodreads:

And their doom comes swiftly.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off the from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

The Teaser:

   Creeeeeeak. A shadow on the white wall of the tower caught her eye. There was something odd about it, something familiar and yet there shouldn’t be a shadow there at all.   pg. 68

Dun-dun-dunnnnnn. I just started this today so I am real excited to dive into the creepy and scary stuff and try to figure out who the killer is! *puts on detective hat*
