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!
Expected Publication Date: September 4th 2012
West is a high school senior who has everything going for him until an accident leaves him paralyzed. Strapped down in his hospital bed, slipping in and out of consciousness, West is terrified and alone. Until he meets Olivia. She’s the girl next door—sort of. A patient in the room next to his, only Olivia can tell what West is thinking, and only Olivia seems to know that the terrible dreams he’s been having are not just a result of his medication. Yet as West comes to rely on Olivia—to love her, even—certain questions pull at him: Why has Olivia been in the hospital for so long? And what does it mean that she is at the center of his nightmares? But the biggest question of all comes when West begins to recover and learns that the mysterious girl he’s fallen in love with has a secret he could never have seen coming.
She put the board back next to my pen and I slowly finished what I wanted to do: a line slashed across two of the lines, making a sideways H and a blobby mark over the third line. Done. Olivia turned the board around. I could tell she was trying to figure out what I wrote. “Hi,” she read. She closed her eyes for a second, and when she opened them, I saw that watery look again. “Hi to you too,” she finally said. pg. 43

I know I picked a longer teaser this week but I am not too far into the book yet and I really loved this scene and thought I would share. 🙂
