Tuesday Teasers: "Gone Missing" and "Starters" and "Boy 21"

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.   
All children are innocent, but Amish children possess a particular kind of innocence. They believe the world is a good place, that their parents never make mistakes, that everyone they meet is their friend, and that if you pray hard enough, God will answer your prayers. It's particularly shattering for an Amish child when she realizes none of those things are true. 
From page 50 of Gone Missing by Linda Castillo. (an Amish thriller)  

"It's even worse, didn't you hear her?" I said to Helena.  "The body bank's going to cherry-pick the prettiest kids and start using them.  We have to stop this."
From page 201 of Starters by Lissa Price.  (YA science fiction)

"My father was number twenty-one in high school, and he's monitoring me from outer space.  I promised I'd always wear number twenty-one for him, so long as I played ball."
From page 114 of Boy 21 by Matthew Quick.
