Teaser Tuesdays/First Chapter Tuesday - September 17th

Every Tuesday Diane at Bibliophile By the Sea hosts First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where we share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. Care to join us?

If you'd like to play along on Teaser Tuesdays, just click the button above.

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!

This week I'm reading...

The big thing about living in a truck-mounted camper, you bump your head a lot. So when Luis's chef Cruz wakes me up with repeated loud knocks, I crack my skull against the tin headliner for the third time in two days. Maybe I need a crash helmet.

"You cannot do the sleep in our parking lot, Austin."

I rub my sore head and peek through the camper's wallet-size plastic rear window. Either it's still dark outside or my brain is beginning to swell.

"I say this a hundred times." Cruz shouts now. "You do not listen. So now I say this...if you use our parking spaces for the bedroom again, I will rat you to the federales."


  1. Good opening, with a mix of humor and possible danger. I'd keep reading.

    Here's my Tuesday post:

  2. I like the opening, but the cover makes me shudder ;-)

  3. Very cute opening, unusual. Sounds like a good book to read, for sure. Intense cover art, but I like the voice of the narrator, semi-sarcastic. Enjoy.

  4. The cover is awful, but the intros not bad so I might keep reading. enjoy

  5. The teaser is definitely better than the cover. I have to wonder what he'd be ratting him off for??

  6. I would need to read a bit more to decide.

  7. Hmm, whats going on there? I'm curious about it...

  8. Love the intro, but wonder what the connection is to the cover.
    Here's My Tuesday Intro
