Tuesday's Teaser

Grab your current read.

Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share two or three “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

Give the title of the book and the page you’re getting your “teaser” from... that way people can pick up some great book recommendations.

~avoid spoilers~

Here's mine:

"Intense irritation set in almost immediately as I waited in the blazing sun in front of the hospital. The usual characters milled about: a clove-smoking teenager sat reading a hardcover book; an old man shuffled across the street taking random, huge steps. A goddamned mime, in jeans and a T-shirt with a white painted face, headed straight toward me." p. 33

Lopsided. How having breast cancer can be really distracting by Meredith Norton

"A hilarious and wickedly irreverent look at life with cancer"

I've been looking for a funny breast cancer book to give my friend who just beat breast cancer. Is it laugh out loud funny?

Cheryl,

I'm only on p. 71 but I've laughed out loud several times already.

The Middle Place is another great book by a breast cancer survivor. It's upbeat & wonderfully written.

Sounds like a book anyone touched by cancer (directly or otherwise) would enjoy. Great teaser!

Sounds like a good book!

This sounds like a great read for anyone, regardless of whether they have cancer or not, I think. Having a great attitude in the face of hardship is something everyone can benefit from.

That is great, another book I am going to have to find.
