Teaser Tuesdays

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!

From The Tearings by V.C. Repetto


"Now the teachers no longer waited for the later symptoms. Like the principal had suggested, a cough got you sent to the nurse’s office, where, if you continued to cough or sneeze, you’d be picked up by one of the many new ambulances that had begun to appear through the city. They didn’t look like the regular 911 ones."

Hi Valentina,

I can think of several films I have watched with the same kind of premise, so this book is a real must read for me.

Those teaser lines have the desired effect of filling me with dread, as this is a scenario which could so easily happen to any of us, in this day and age!

I have searched everywhere I can think, but have been unable to find a full synopsis for the book ... it must be one of the best kept secrets before publishing!

I am also intrigued how your friend came up with the title,'The Tearings', unless of course that is also revealed in the story?

Wish her every success with the book, it sounds as though it has real potential.

Yvonne
