Tuesday Teasers: "Out Of My Mind", "The Emergency Teacher", "3 Little Words"

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. 
I knew a lot of words, but I couldn't read a book. I had a million thoughts in my head, but I couldn't share them with anybody. On top of that, people didn't really expect the kids in H-5 to learn much anyway.
From page 45 of Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper. Click the link to see my review of this one.

Alone in this spooky castle, I crept down the stairs, and then ran down the hallway to the fire-escape door. A heavy chain hung from one side, but had no padlock. Panting, I flung the door open, realizing the next time I came back here the building would be filled with kids.
From page 27 of The Emergency Teacher--The Inspirational Story of a New Teacher in an Inner City School by Christina Asquith. (non-fiction)

The cake smelled lemony as it baked.  My mother handed her parenting class completion certificate to Mr. Ferris.  "There's only a few more tasks on my list before you can come home with me," she said to me.
From page 89 of Three Little Words by Ashley Rhodes-Courter.

  8. Dark Fallen: Yes, I liked this one very much and it inspired me to choose Joni and Friends for our comment for charity for June.

    Alice: We are finding lots of good YA books!

    Gautami: Which one are you referring to? Your general comment makes me think you just copied the same comment and use it for all the Tuesday Teasers you visit. Do you?

    Sandy, Faith, Shelley, Jessica: Glad you liked our teasers!

    Wendi B: It looked good as I was hunting for the teaser so I'm going to read it too when Gerard is done.

    Gigi Ann: The beginning is slow and boring so I'm hoping it gets better. I think it will. I'm just starting the part where she actually gets her class.


Thanks for commenting and happy reading!
