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 pag e
* 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!
Josh’s eyes shine. “Anna. Haven’t you ever drunk before?”
“Of course,” I lie. But a blush destroys my cover. They all scream.
“How can you have gone half a school year without drinking?” Rashmi asks.

"Need a poo, Todd."
"Shut up, Manchee."
"Poo. Poo, Todd."
"I said shut it."
~ The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
In case you ask, Manchee is a dog in The Knife of Never Letting Go. It's got a pretty weird writing style -or should I say spelling style? But anyways, both have been awesome so far. I'm really enjoying the two.
Lyn's Teaser Tuesday:
Across the hall he went, trailing a long black shadow that slipped like a phantom over the fiery reflections on the floor. The knife glinted softly in his hand.
Onto the staircase, slowly, steadily. His feet made no sound. He kept his eyes fixed on the balcony above.
With murder in his heart, he unlatched the door; stepped inside, and pushed it swiftly shut behind him.
