Teaser Tuesday (13)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
DO NOT INCLUDE SPOILERS (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away, so that you don't ruin the book for others)
Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR list is they like your teasers!

I’m currently reading Shades of Atlantis by Carol Oates for a book tour that I’m part of in April. It’s the first ever book tour that I’m participating in so I’m really excited. Right now, I’m about halfway through the book and it’s a real roller coaster ride and a great story! Here’s my teaser for the week:

Chris moved nearer, and I felt the palm of his hand push against my hip. His stale breath blew in my face. I grimaced, closing my eyes and turning my head sideways, searching for some air not contaminated by him.

The thing I like about this book is that it has a lot of little differences from typical YA paranormal stories, but they make a big difference. For example, the love interest isn’t a high school student like the main character, he’s 21-years-old. Also, the whole story doesn’t take place in the same small town typical of these stories, but it changes around halfway to London. I like the way that’s done.

If you want to see a list of the blog participating in the blog tour, check out Carol's site here. More information is to come.

Feel free to share links to your teasers! I’d love to see what you’re reading.
