Teaser Tuesday



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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My teaser this week comes from:


 
Moonglass by Jessi Kirby

Small blurb from Goodreads.com: I read once that water is a symbol for emotions. And for a while now, I've thought maybe my mother drowned in both.  Anna's life is upended when her father accepts a job transfer the summer before her junior year. It's bad enough that she has to leave her friends and her life behind, but her dad is moving them to the beach where her parents first met and fell in love- a place awash in memories that Anna would just as soon leave under the surface.  While life on the beach is pretty great, with ocean views and one adorable lifeguard in particular, there are also family secrets that were buried along the shore years ago. And the ebb and flow of the ocean's tide means that nothing- not the sea glass that she collects on the sand and not the truths behind Anna's mother's death- stays buried forever.

Teaser from page 174: "He was watching something. I saw nothing but the grass that waved and rolled languidly with each swell, like a woman's long hair.  He stayed still a second longer and then shook his head and began to kick again.  Directly below me a bright orange Garibaldi darted out from under a rock overhang and swam right under me like I was invisible.  That wouldn't have been what my dad was looking for, and I wondered for a second what else he had seen."

Share your teaser for this week!!
