CLPTeaser Tuesday – Bruiser by Neal Shusterman

It’s time again for Teaser Tuesday.  What’s Teaser Tuesday?  It’s a game.  (Based on pageturnsblog.)  How do we play?  I try to convince you to pick up and read the book I’m currently reading by posting two “teaser” sentences.  You in turn try to convince me to pick up the book you are reading by posting two teaser sentences from your book.  Here are the rules:

  • Pick up what you’re reading.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Post two sentences from somewhere on the page.  (Don’t choose sentences that will give away too much, you don’t want to ruin it for others.)
  • Include the Title and Author so that others can start reading it.

My teaser this month is:

Bruiser by Neal Shusterman

“My uncle knows about the things I can do – the pain that I take – and knowing makes him still crazier and more protective, but of himself, not me.  I muffle the screaming wound with a white gauze square; but nervous, tense, I press too hard and wince, a small twitch almost imperceptible, and he’s looking at me with searing intensity, seeing all.”

Now, it’s your turn.  Post two sentences along with the Title and Author of the book.

    “American Gods” by Neil Gaiman
