Having discovered on Brainfluff, an excellent blog, this meme hosted by The Purple Booker, I am putting forth my Tuesday Teaser for this week.
Instructions were to choose a random sentence or two and type them hoping to tease others into reading the same book you are reading. Add yours here after mine by hitting Leave a Reply:
This teaser is from Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, a YA novel. I am at the end of Chapter Eleven where Dante and Ari fifteen year old friends are about to part ways for a year because Dante’s professor father has taken a temporary position at another university.
“Dante hugged me.
I hugged him back.
‘See you in a few months,’ he said.
‘Yeah,’ I said.
‘I’ll write,’ he said.
I knew he would.
I wasn’t sure I’d write back.”
The book starts a whole new section after this as the two friends ponder the secrets of Life and the Universe-two boys so alike and so different all at the same time. This is a magnificently written novel with mystery, friendship and family relationships, and excellent dialogue employed well.
