Teaser Tuesday 10/13

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

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!
  • Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!
I confess, I cheated a little picking this one. The first one I picked made no sense out of context, so this was the second random page I picked:
The only noises were the ones I made, and a little hush of water, and the stirring of the leaves in the air off the lake. The shoreline was more rock than marsh, and when we crossed a ragged little stream the cold water against my feet was a shock: I'm alive, it said.
From Sunshine by Robin McKinley.

  6. I enjoy the feeling of being alive, even if it means a little pain - it is better than feeling nothing at all.
