Welcome to this week’s Teaser Tuesday!
The rules are simple:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share one or two sentences from that page
- Avoid spoilers – Pick a sentence that doesn’t give too much away
Today’s teaser comes from Unconventional by Maggie Harcourt. This was the favourite of the 4 books I read for the SundayYAthon over Easter weekend. Good news – it was released in January so you don’t need to wait, you can buy it now! The teaser below is from the opening chapter.
There is a very specific sensation, right in the pit of your stomach, that comes from realizing that because you sent that stupid confirmation email from your stupid phone on the stupid bus while you were thinking about the stupid history essay that was due yesterday, you put a hyphen in the wrong place…and now, instead of having a box of inflatable three-metre-high palm trees. you have, essentially, palm trees that wouldn’t impress a toddler…never mind the seven hundred book, film and comic fans who will be pitching up just in time to look down – literally – on them.
And this very specific, palm-tree-related sensation?
It’s not good.
It’s not good at all.
Also bonus pineapple related fact from the book!
A pineapple plant only produces one pineapple every two – three years. Once a pineapple has been picked, it’s won’t get any riper. (Though it will begin to perish after two days.)
