Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB at 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!
This week my teaser is from Happy Birthday to Me by Brian Rowe. My review will be up later this week.
“What happened to me is something extraordinary. I’ve only recently discovered what caused my disease. I can’t really believe it. I don’t know if I ever will.
But it happened. Even though I look eighty on the outside, I’m still just a seventeen-year-old kid on the inside. I’m days away from my high school graduation, an event that was to promise the beginning of the rest of my life. Instead, I’m facing the countdown to my imminent death.” pg. 4
Seventeen-year-old Cameron Martin has a huge problem: he’s aging a whole year of his life with each passing day!
High school is hard enough; imagine rapidly aging from seventeen to seventy in a matter of weeks, with no logical explanation, and with prom, graduation, and the state championship basketball game all on the horizon. That’s what happens to Cameron, a popular pretty boy who's never had to face a day looking anything but perfect.
All Cameron wants to do is go back to normal, but no one, not even the best doctors, can diagnose his condition. When he finds love with a mysterious young woman, however, he realizes his only hope for survival might be with the one person who started his condition in the first place..
