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! (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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
“Hey,” she said without looking up at me. “We need to work on your campaign today. You’re way behind.” She was right. Jake already had posters up all over the school. I suspected Mercedes Bentley was probably behind them— because they were a candid picture of a shirtless Jake laughing. Underneath it said, “Jake Kingston… does a student body good.” Yes, I drooled, but as a feminist, I was highly offended. Highly.
Fine. I would admit to stealing one of the posters.

“Fine, just forgetful.” I’m pretty sure I started saying some unkind things about calculus’s mother under my breath because Jake raised one eyebrow and looked over at me. “Jeez, what did calculus ever do to you?”
“Here’s the thing. Math and I broke up two years ago, and now whenever we get together it’s just weird and awkward for both of us.”

I was picturing his face, a boy with floppy brown hair and brown eyes when the feed ended. At first, I didn’t know what had happened. I didn’t know where I was or why it was so dark. I only knew that the pain inside me, the feeling that I was being drained from the inside out, had subsided.
