Teaser Tuesday (48)

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 just started reading Marie Lu's debut novel, Legend, which came out in November. I'm only a couple chapters in, but really liking the tone of the story. Here's a teaser for you:

My mother thinks I'm dead.
Obviously I'm not dead, but it's safer for her to think so.

These are the opening two sentences of the book. It starts with Day as the narrator. I love books that switch narrators, I feel you get a much better understanding of the characters. I think I'm going to enjoy Legend already!

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

I enjoy switched narrators, too, if it's done well. This one sounds intriguing.

I agree having more than one narrator can give the reader a better understanding of what is going on in the story.
Great Teaser! Can't wait to read Legend.

Oooh interesting! Haven't read this one, but now I am really curious! Why would it be safe for the mother to think that? Looove puzzling teases like these!
