Teaser Tuesday: "Sweetness." "I Am in Here" and "The Guardian"


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! 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!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   
Gerard's:
"I had no idea who he was. On the first day of practice I turned to hand the ball to him and he was so quick, I barely got it to him. Then I watched him run . . ."
From page 130 of Sweetness--The Enigmatic Life of Walter Payton by Jeff Pearlman.


Am I on display?
Why do they look at me that way?
I want to say
I am okay.
Sometimes I do things you may wonder about.
Just let me be and don't try to figure it out.

From page 43 of I Am in Here: The Journey of a Child with Autism Who Cannot Speak but Finds Her Voice by Bonker and Breen.

Karen's:
In the past, he'd been the good guy, the friend, the one she could always count on.  The one who fixed her car and played Frisbee with Singer, the one who spent the first two years after Jim's death holding her as she cried.
From page 64 of The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks.

  1. Only heard of the last book, but the second one looks really interesting.

    Also, I guess you don't like urban fantasy?

  2. I love Nicholas Sparks, but this is one I haven't read yet. The teaser is sad, but makes me wonder what the present and future hold!

  3. I'm really interested in the Guardian. I love Nicholas Sparks, but haven't read that one yet. I'll have to track it down at my library. Here's mine if you're interested. http://danicapage.blogspot.com/2011/11/teaser-tuesday-9.html

    P.S. I think it's so cool that you are donating to a charity per comment.
