Teaser Tuesdays

To participate in Teaser Tuesdays is simple: take your current read, choose two sentences from any page and post (be sure to not post any spoilers). Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of ShouldBeReading.

This week we chose our teaser from Girl, Stolen by April Henry.

"There was a long silence. When it was broken, it was not by a gunshot, but by Griffin's voice, weary and disappointed." (Page 173, ARC)

Book summary: Sixteen year-old Cheyenne Wilder is sleeping in the back of a car while her mom fills her prescription at the pharmacy. Before Cheyenne realizes what's happening, their car is being stolen--with her inside Griffin hadn't meant to kidnap Cheyenne, all he needed to do was steal a car for the others. But once Griffin's dad finds out that Cheyenne's father is the president of a powerful corporation, everything changes--now there's a reason to keep her. What Griffin doesn't know is that Cheyenne is not only sick with pneumonia, she is blind. How will Cheyenne survive this nightmare, and if she does, at what price?

Girl, Stolen is a YA novel, 213 pages, published by Henry Holt & Company and is available now.


  1. Wow! That sounds intense! Quite the antithesis of my teaser, which you can find here:


  2. Very emotionally charged! My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/11/teaser-tuesdays-heideggers-glasses.html

  3. Here is my teaser from "The Lodestone Book One: The Sea of Storms" by Mark Whiteway (Prologue):

    It was early in the afternoon, when Kal first saw the flying rock.

    Well, perhaps "flying" was a slight exaggeration; a subtle embellishment that he might have used later when trying to impress his younger brother, or his friends after third-day prayers. It was a least enough to break Kal out of his reverie. Hymarr's reaction was the last thing he had expected.

    He has been rehearsing in his mind for days beforehand how he would ask her to accompany him to the Spring Gratitude Service. That morning, as he lay in his bedchamber, before even Ali-Gan, the yellow sun, has risen over the western horizon, he determined that today was going to be the day.

  4. Sounds kind of depressing, but a great teaser really:)
