Teaser Tuesdays (3)

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 "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!

My Teaser:
I told her how strong she was and how healthy she was going to be and how proud I was of her and I dropped in how many calories I ate that day, the magic number on the scale, the number of inches around my thighs. We went to the mall and I made sure we used the same dressing room so she could see my skeleton shine in the florescent blue light.

~ pg. 98 - "Wintergirls" by Laurie Halse Anderson




This book is so sad so far, but so true to life. I haven't gotten quite half way and I've already had a few teary moments. One of my friends in junior high went through anorexia and it was hard to watch. If only she knew how she was affecting me.



You can participate in Teaser Tuesday with or without a blog! To share your own, or read some others, simply head over here.

  1. That's a sad teaser. I really want to read this book, but I'm still hesitant because of the subject it deals with. I'll be looking forward to reading your review on it.

  2. At first I thought the narrator of your teaser was talking about the anorexic but at the end it seemed she was the anorexic. Maybe they both are? Looks good. Here's my teaser for Watermark.

  4. Very sad and scary teaser. I remember being headed that way myself, way back in junior high, so this might not be one I could read. But it does sound interesting.

  9. I could never read this book as I almost lost a daughter to this insidious disease. It's one of the most difficult things to ever deal with as the repercussions last for years and years.
