Teaser Tuesday (20)

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 just about to start reading Go Ask Alice, the real diary of a 15-year-old drug user, for the summer book club my friends and I are doing. I found a great teaser from the first page:

Yesterday I bought this diary because I thought at last I'd have something wonderful and great and worthwhile to say, something so personal that I wouldn't be able to share it with another living person, only myself. Now like everything else in my life, it has become so much nothing.

I'm excited to read this. It'll be weird realizing that everything I'm reading ACTUALLY happened in this girl's life. I don't know what I'm expecting, but I feel like it'll be hard to believe sometimes. I guess it'll just be proof that some people go through really tough stuff. I can't wait to get started.

Feel free to share your teasers with me! I'd love to see what you're reading.


  1. I've read a lot of mix reviews about this one. I have it in my reading pile since last year but I'll definitely give it a try soon. Here is ours: Teen Readers' Diary

  2. Oh my gosh! I read this in High School, then again a couple of years ago when I pulled out the box of book that I SAVED from HS... It was still horrifying and touching 10 years after the first time I read it!

  3. Great teaser. I might have to give this one a read. :0)
