Teaser Tuesday/Top off Tuesday Double Feature #7

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!)

  • Here is my Teaser:

    Synopsis per Goodreads:
    When love leads to death, be careful who you trust…

    Eighteen-year-old Emily Heath would love to leave her dead-end town, known locally as "The Sham", with her boyfriend, Jack, but he's very, very sick; his body is failing and his brain is shutting down. He's also in hiding, under suspicion of murder. Six months' ago, strange signs were painted across town in a dialect no one has spoken for decades and one of Emily's classmates washed up in the local floods. 

    Emily has never trusted her instincts and now they're pulling her towards Jack, who the police think is a sham himself, someone else entirely. As the town wakes to discover new signs plastered across its walls, Emily must decide who and what she trusts, and fast: local vigilantes are hunting Jack; the floods, the police, and her parents are blocking her path; and the town doesn’t need another dead body.

    page 136

    "Do you know why Jack left so suddenly?" Brown asked.
    I shook my head but I could guess the worse.  Two new signs had appeared after months of nothing.  The superstitious talk of how death comes in threes.  Becky was missing.

    share with me your teaser links so I can stop by and check it out :)

    and because I can't make up my mind which one I like the most, I'm participating in Top off Tuesdays too! LOL I know I know, but HEY! Eye CANDY!

    Top off Tuesday is hosted by Felicia from The
    Geeky Book Blogger's Book Blog

    1. The Sham sounds interesting. Is it a YA novel?

      1. It's labeled as a YA contemporary novel. I'm thinking its a little bit older than YAm and more of a thriller than contemporary. If I personally labelled it, Id probably go with new adult thriller type book.
